Event description

Description

The Filipino American Center of the San Francisco Public Library with Bridge and Delta Publishing present the launch of the English Tagalog children’s book, Beautiful Eyes Book and Activity Book, by Gayle Romasanta, translated by Carmen and Pat Romasanta, illustrated by Ramon Abad.

Beautiful Eyes is based on the timeless motor skills and memory game taught to Filipino babies. The book emphasizes the beauty that is the Filipino self. It aims to nurture this sense of self early in the baby years for little ones to take into adulthood and for adults to remember this sense of self as they read to their children. The companion activity book focuses on teaching young readers colors, emotions and body parts. It allows caregivers and children to explore who they are, both their physical and emotional selves. Both books were written to color, draw and imagine the past, present and future.

The program features:
* Puppet show by puppeteer and illustrator Ramon Abad
* Q&A with the book's creators
* Family friendly performances and activities
* Light food and refreshments
* Book sales and signing.

A percentage of proceeds from the books benefit the nonprofit Pin@y Educational Partnerships (PEP).
