For Filipino Storytime, we'll be reading PAROL: What Makes Us Filipino
Navigating life as Filipino-American immigrant children, Kakai and Inggo share their Filipino culture and traditions with friends. They learn values and delight in colorful stories from the homeland filled with humor, hardships, and undying resilience that help them understand who they are; that we may do similar traditions differently, but that is okay. Heritage is identity, and what makes us Filipino is something to be proud of.
Being different is unique. And being different is good.
