Calling everyone interested in children’s books for Philippine indigenous groups.
We think it’s about time we work together to build a database on children’s books created by, for, or about our country’s indigenous people (IPs).
Indigenous communities, writers, illustrators, publishers, educators (especially Mother Tongue-Based-Multilingual Education teachers), researchers, development workers, and other persons interested in children’s books for IPs will greatly benefit from this database.
We will put a link (URL) to the database on this site after we organise the initial submissions. It will be updated regularly.
If you want to contribute to the database, here are the books eligible for submission:
- – Those created by, for, or about any Philippine indigenous group, including local or foreign titles translated to IP languages
- – Those in print or in electronic/digital format, created by a single individual or a team/group, in any year
- – There is no limitation to the theme or topic of the book.
Thank you very much!
