My First Book of Tagalog Words: Filipino Rhymes and VersesMy First Book of Tagalog Words: Filipino Rhymes and Verses by Liana Romulo
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Kids are introduced to some Tagalog words through rhyming text (which at times are awkward) with occasional glimpses into Filipino culture. As stated by the author, some liberties were made to incorporate all the letters of the English alphabet since the Filipino alphabet features less letters and some extra ones not included here.

    What fun to learn about another language in a picture book. I have a “niece-in-law” who is Filipino & she will enjoy hearing about this, Earl.

    Cute! Making rhymes work with different languages can be difficult, but it looks like a fun introduction to a new language nonetheless.

    Interesting! What a great resource for classrooms, especially ones with ELL students.
