Description
Amara is a young Filipino-American girl who loves when her big extended family comes over to visit. As their parents prepare a lunch filled with different traditional Filipino dishes, Amara and her pinsans (cousins) want to put on a performance but can't seem to agree on how to entertain Lolo (grandfather) and Lola (grandmother). Should they sing a song or do cartwheels? Choreograph a dance or perform magic tricks? My Pinsans & Me: Amara's Talent Show is a story about family, teamwork and celebrating each other's differences.
About the author
Monica Canlas Tuy and Eric Tuy are proud Filipino-Americans born into big families that enjoy spending time together. They wrote this book to celebrate their family bonds and childhood memories to share with their daughter, Amara. Monica's weekly visits with her cousins to see Lola and Eric's trips to the Philippines to visit his extended family inspired this story. They believe that representation matters and hope that My Pinsans & Me will encourage Filipino-American children to connect with themselves and their culture on a deeper level.
