September 2 - Do you read Filipino literature? If yes, what are some books by Filipino authors that you can recommend to fellow readers?
This Friday's meme made me look back at the Filipiniana reviews I have posted in this blog. To answer the questions, I went back to the blog archives and exhumed quite a number of book reviews. I'm a school librarian thus, my orientation leans heavily on Philippine Children's and Young Adult Literature. Some noteworthy links from the recommended reads I made in the PBBY website is also included in the link list.
I hope that, you, the reader, would patiently click the links and see for yourself the wonderful Filipianan materials we have out there for kids and teens. Here goes --
Ang Pambihirang Buhok ni Lola by Rene Villanueva
Elias and His Trees by Augie Rivera
Rosang Taba by Dean Alfar
Bruhaha! Bruhihi! by Ompong Remigio
The Boy Who Touched Heavenby Iris Gem Li
PBBY: Recommended Reads
Back in 2005, I even attempted to create a bibliography of Filipiniana for Children.
Books about the Handicapped and Special Children
Subject Index for Filipiniana for Children Annotated Bibliography
Annotated Bibliography: A Work in Progress
Having done this meme, I realized how few my reviews of Filipiniana for Children and Young Adult have been over the six years of blogging. I should do more of this.
