Quality books that celebrate Filipino life and culture, that is  Tahanan Books.

Inspiring Filipino Books from Bookmark Inc. Publishing

We love reading. Most of what we are reading are English classics where we learn about the different characters and their beliefs and how it affects their lives. Yesterday, I was at Fully Booked when I saw several inspiring Filipino authored and published picture books that seems interesting and I wanted to get for my children so we can discuss Filipino values and modern Filipino heroes as well.

On this post, I will share with you what I found from Bookmark Inc Publishing.

The Bookmark Inc Publishing has this series called Modern Heroes for the Filipino Youth Series. Each story exemplifies a moral value which we can all learn from.
