bakit matagal ang sundo ko why is my mommy late Reviews
Personal response: It is a sweet story about a Filipino preschooler who is not picked up on time by her mom. In order to calm herself she creates very imaginative stories about why her mom is late. This is a common occurance at our school and children do feel abandoned. No matter how much we try to assure them that their parents will show up they panick.This would be a great book to read to our Pre-schoolers and kindergarteners in the beginning of the school year. I found this book on the International Children's Digital Library. It won the Grand Prize-PBPY-Salang Writer's Prize. The book is written in both English and Talago.
It's very nice story!!
This was an absolutely adorable story by Kristine Canon and illustrated by Mariano Ching. It is a story about a young preschool girl, who was eagerly waiting for her mother to pick her up from school when the bell rang. Much to her surprise, her mother was not sitting at the bench waiting for her, where she usually is. As she watches her classmates leaving with their parents, her worries grew bigger. Finally, when she was the only one left waiting for her mother, she let her imagination take her on a ride to explain why her mother was late. When her mother finally showed up, it turns out she was only stuck in traffic after all!I loved that the story was told from a first person point of view, and it had the translation in English for Tagalog. It allowed us to be inside of the young preschooler's head, and it made her story and thoughts more relatable. I was not particularly fond of the illustrations, but I appreciated how the illustrations complimented the story. It did so because it was suiting for illustrating a preschooler's imagination. This would be a fun read for young children, and especially for children who speak Tagalog and English at home!
Published: 2001, Adarna HouseAge: 5-8 This book is Philippine book about a little girl who is in a hurry to get her things ready to leave school at the end of the day and be picked up by her mother. She sits on the bench and waits and waits for her. She begins to become afraid when she doesn’t come and all the other children have been picked up. The guard tells her maybe she is stuck in traffic. But the little girl lets her imagination run wild as she thinks of quirky ways that her mother could be trying to get to her. Could her mother be riding on a turtle to get there? Or a whale? On an eagle? Just when she is about to give up and cry, her mother comes to her. The illustrations show only the little girl with the people and backgrounds painted as shadows. The pictures are painted as a little child would draw them because the story is told through her eyes and you feel as though you are seeing what she is thinking. This is a universal situation that all little kids would feel when their parent is not there to pick them up.
(: جعلتني أتسائل عما يدور في خلد أطفالنا في كثير من المواقف التي قد نعتبرها بسيطة ، ويعتبرونها مربكة
