From the author of Filipino Children’s Favorite Stories comes a book for young children that features a Filipino-American boy visiting the Philippines for the very first time. Featuring soft watercolor illustrations, each picture is labeled with English words and their Filipino translations, and shows readers both the similarities and differences between Western and Philippine lifestyles. Filipino Friends, perfect for Filipino-American’s or those just interested in the culture, is indispensable in bridging the gap between the two cultures.
Following the sweet multicultural children’s story, kids will learn about Philippine customs and traditions, including:
Filipino festivals and celebrations
Traditional dress
Snacks and meals
Songs and games
The Filipino language—Tagalog—and more!
