Summary
Let 'All About the Philippines' take you on an awesome journey to the lively and colourful country of Mary, Jaime and Ari - first cousins who look completely different from one another but are the best of friends. They'll introduce you to their homes, their schools, their families, favourite 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. Along with fun facts, you'll learn about the spirit of the Philippines that makes this country and its people wonderfully unique. This is a book for families to enjoy together
