Pok Pok Alimpako: A Maranao Folk Song
Illustrated by Liza Flores
Tahanan Books for Young Readers, ©2022.
“Pok Pok Alimpako” is a game song in which children stack their fists, building an imaginary staircase to the moon and stars. Taking inspiration from the delicately intricate okir motifs in Maranao traditional art, Liza Flores used paper cutouts to weave a whimsical journey.
