Through the eyes of Sam, a Filipino-American boy visiting the Philippines for the very first time, children learn about Philippines customs and language. Colorful, detailed watercolors -- labeled with English words and Filipino translations -- bring to light the differences between western and Philippine lifestyles. Children of expatriate Filipinos as well as expatriate children living in the Philippines will find Filipino Friends 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!
