Book Review/Giveaway: The Bamboo Dance. Ends Feb 18th


Christine and Aisha, co-owners and creators of the Independent Children’s Book Publishing Company, www.hartlynkids.com  

 

About Christine: One of Christine’s earliest memories as a child involves riding a small boat at Disney World. On that boat, she stared in amazement as little puppets sung “It’s a Small World” in different languages. Fast forward many years later, with a banking position, a budding writing career, and a family, Christine now joins her friend, Aisha, as they strive to raise globally minded children.

About Aisha: It was only a matter of time before Aisha got the inkling to start introducing her daughter to a “Cosmopolitan” life! Having lived inNew York city for most of her life, Aisha was quickly exposed to various ethnic cultures, which opened up her appetite for further exploration. AtNew YorkUniversity and later at law school, Aisha could be found visiting various locales including, Senegal,Paris, Amsterdam and the Caribbean. Motherhood is quickly becoming an extension of her global citizenship.

About the Author: Cress Sia grew up in the Philippines but spent a few years in the United States for some high school and college education. She is a pharmacist by day and a creative writer by night. She lives with her family in Cebu, Philippines.

About the Book: Meet Paco and Diego, two Filipino boys, as they learn to dance the tinikling, the national dance of thePhilippines. Along the way, they will learn that practice makes perfect, especially when you have the encouragement of your friend!

My Review: Bamboo Dance is a great book that introduces children to the culture of the Philippines.

While Paco and Diego were waiting to be picked up from school, they decided to go across the street to the strip of sari sari stores. They picked up some food and drinks and sat on a wooden bench outside the shop and ate silently while they watch some children in a near by parking lot with two dancers doing the tinkling dance. They remember learning the steps and decided to join them, but Diego was having problems keeping up with the beat as it speeds up. Would Diego let his friend Paco teach him how to dance?

Children can travel to another country by reading books from ‘Traveling The Globe One Book At A Time’ and learn about different cultures. This book comes with a passport and a welcome sticker. Learn the meaning of Tinikling the national dance of thePhilippines, Sari-Sari the small shops in wooden buildings and more.
