What does it mean to “come home” for the first time? From Manila With Love tells the story of a young girl who accompanies her Filipina mother to Manila for the first time. Readers will delight in her delightful, unexpected discoveries—from arriving in a sticky-hot airport to meeting relatives face-to-face to sitting down to a splendid table of native dishes and—best of all, meeting the grandmother who has loved her through years of letter-writing and sending pasalubongs. Here is a story that tenderly captures the incomparable joy of the balikbayan experience. Told in rhyming verse accompanied by picturesque illustrations, this book will surely resonate with all Filipino children, wherever they may be in the world.
