My First Tagalog (Filipino) Dictionary
Tagalog (also known as Filipino) is the national language of the Philippines with an estimated 28 million speakers worldwide.
With colorful, eye-catching illustrations to stimulate imagination and curiosity, My First Tagalog Dictionary is specially designed for children ages 5 to 12. It contains more than 1,000 everyday words (from colors, animals, household items, foods and more)―each illustrated and translated into Tagalog. The illustrations are arranged alphabetically by English so even young readers can easily search for words, and each one is labeled with clear, bold type.
Recent studies suggest that children should begin learning a foreign language before age 10 for best results. This dictionary is a fun, engaging way for parents or grandparents to introduce Tagalog to their young children. Teachers will also find the dictionary useful for students who are learning Tagalog from Kindergarten and up.
