Meanwhile, Icko Gonzalez, Project Head for Superbook and Special Projects Manager for CBN Asia, shared that Superbook will host mall shows and school tours, tagging along Gizmo. He also said that they have an online club, Batang Superbook where parents can register their kids as well as Facebook and Instagram accounts where they will post announcements and updates.
