My First Book of Tagalog Words: Filipino Rhymes and Verses

  • Published date: March 21, 2018

My First Book of Tagalog Words is a beautifully illustrated book that introduces young children to Filipino language and culture through everyday words.

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 My First Book of Tagalog Words are multiple: to familiarize children with the sounds and structure of the Tagalog language; 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.

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!


About the author: Liana Romulo lives mostly in the Philippines but has also lived in Thailand, Belgium, and the United States. Her first picture book, Filipino Children's Favorite Stories, was a national bestseller in the Philippines.
