Recommended Books for Filipino Storytime Age 0-5

Hello everyone! I'm so excited that there's a lot more interest in teaching kids Tagalog in our community. I have been doing Filipino Storytime with my daughter since she was born and even though books are very useful, for younger kids, I use songs as the main medium in which to teach Tagalog.

Singing and music play an important role in our culture. For our Filipino Story time, we sing a lot of songs because toddlers love to listen to music and love sing to themselves. They can recognize the melody of a song before they can actually speak the words. I also love rhyming phrases and games. I think the Filipino language has certain poetry to it that works well when spoken or read aloud.

Here is a list of books that we have used in the previous Filipino Storytime with children ages 0-5.
