Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

andlt;iandgt;My First Book of Tagalog Wordsandlt;/iandgt; is a beautifully illustrated book that introduces young children to Filipino language and culture through everyday words.andlt;BRandgt;andlt;BRandgt;The words profiled in this book are all commonly used in the Filipino language and are both informative and fun for English-speaking children to learn. The goals of andlt;iandgt;My First Book of Tagalog Wordsandlt;/iandgt; are multiple: to familiarize children with the sounds and structure of Filipino speech; to introduce core elements of Filipino culture; to illustrate the ways in which languages differ in their treatment of everyday sounds; and to show how, through cultural importation, a single word can be shared between languages.andlt;BRandgt;andlt;BRandgt;Both teachers and parents will welcome the book's cultural references, and appreciate how the book is organized in a familiar ABC structure. With the help of this book, we hope more children (and adults) will soon be a part of the 22 million people worldwide that speak Tagalog!
