Favorite Filipino Children’s Books [NCBD2015 Blog Tour]
What are your favorite Filipino children’s books?
My criteria for this changed a bit, when I became a mom. What I look for now is a book that has a flow to it, use of words that encourages a kid to participate, and makes for a good reading experience for both me (the reader) and her (the audience).
The Great Duck and Crocodile Race by Robert Magnuson. This was recommended to me by Tarie Sabido, and she was right — my daughter loved this. As we read it more, she takes over more of the words, and soon she’ll be reading it to me. There’s also a crocodile in a skirt, and that’s always funny.
