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.

Mang Andoy the signmaker is given the challenge of a lifetime when the Mayor barges into his workshop one day and complains, “It’s chaos out there! Nobody’s following the rules!” How then can Mang Andoy create signs that would turn their unruly community into law-abiding citizens? The art of persuasion is delightfully unveiled in Paterno’s richly nuanced urban tale brought to street life by Roxas’s zany imagination. Children will be all the wiser to learn that how you ask is just as important as what you ask for.
