  • All About the Philippines

    All About the Philippines: Stories, Crafts and More for Kids, a children’s illustrated book that centers on the Philippines as a land of beautiful islands and rich diversity and culture, by Gidget Jimenez with illustrations from Corazon Dandan-Albano has been released by Tuttle Philippines. 

    All About the Philippines takes readers on an incredible journey to the lively and colorful country of Mary, Jaime and Ari -- first cousins who look completely different but are the best of friends. They'll introduce you to their homes, their schools, their families, favorite places to visit, holidays and more. They'll show you how kids there -- just like kids in so many other parts of the world -- come from many cultures and have their own traditions, languages and beliefs, and yet, they are all 100% Filipino.

    Mary, Jaime and Ari will give the readers the story about conquistadors and traders who came to the islands many years ago, how natural disasters make the country a place that is beautiful and full of life, Filipino games and cultural festivals, local delicacies, holiday decoration, and how people of many languages can communicate together. Along with fun facts, readers will learn about the spirit of the Philippines that make the country and its people wonderfully unique. This is a book for families or classrooms to enjoy together.

    Gidget Jimenez is the author of poetry and non-fiction books for kids, including the popular ‘Can We?’ science series. She lives in the Philippines with her husband, their three children and their pets. Corazon Dandan-Albano has illustrated over thirty children's books, including the popular Filipino Friends and Filipino Celebrations. She lives in the Philippines with her husband and their two daughters.

    All About the Philippines is available for P489 in National Book Store and Powerbooks branches, or you can shop online and buy eBooks at nationalbookstore.com.
