According to Professor Vic Villanueva, reading teacher, specialist, and consultant, in his talk “Reading Landscape: What Readers Look for in a Good Story?” during last year’s The Philippine Readers and Writers Festival, it was proved through research and study that weekly, 22 percent of Filipino readers read non-school books, 22 percent doesn’t read, 91 percent read for information and knowledge, and nine (9) percent read for enjoyment. Obviously, Filipinos love to read to learn information. But the question is, “What information do they want?”
Like for instance, if you are a parent, you ask yourself, “What do my kids want? Why do they want to know?” Professor Vic said that your answer should depend on what hat you’re wearing. Are you going to answer it as a teacher, parent, publisher, or writer? This question drives your actions, motives, and assumptions. Aside from these facts, even if you are wearing different hats at the same time or one at a time, you have to take into consideration that this is the hierarchy of what kids want in a good story: security, love and being loved, to belong, to achieve, to change, to know, and to have beauty and order.
