Filipino Celebrations

Filipino Celebrations
Summary

This multicultural children's book is full of Filipino holidays, culture, language and stories!

In the Philippines, people love to celebrate—holidays are filled with music and dancing, sometimes with colorful costumes, and always with great food! Rich with detailed watercolors and cultural flavor, Filipino Celebrations: A Treasury of Feasts and Festivals makes major holidays (like Christmas) and family gatherings (like weddings and birthdays) come alive.

From these pages, children will learn the history of each holiday, its cultural influences, the varied ways in which people celebrate in different regions of the Philippines, special customs and food, key words and phrases (in English and Tagalog), and more. Games, songs, and other activities invite young readers to join in the fun. New and familiar holidays take on a special flavor as children learn about the diverse cultures that make up this wonderful island nation. Perfect for Filipino-American families looking to share the unique culture of the Philippines, educators interested in promoting multiculturalism in the classroom, or anyone interested in the country, Filipino Celebrations will encourage children ages five to ten to participate and learn while having fun.

Celebrations and festivals include:
Mga Kaarawan—Birthdays
Semana Santa—Holy Week
Mga Barrio Fiestas—Town Festivals
Mga Binyag—Baptisms
Araw ng Kalayaan—Independence Day and more!

Engaging books.  Engaging moments.
