Give A Book This Christmas!

Philippineschristmasstamp10

Celebrate Christmas with a gift that keeps giving, even to the next generation that follows.

Give a Book for Christmas, not just any book but a Filipiniana book that embodies the thoughts, words and aspirations of the Filipino people. Fortunes come and go but the culture of a people stays as long as the people live. But culture must be nurtured among the young so that it is passed on to the next generation. And when memory fails, there is nothing like Philippine booksstack_of_books 25% that document all the cultural treasures of a people to bring back the customs and traditions that enrich the Filipino.

In our 28 years of serving the Filipino Community in the US, this is the first time that we are offering a special Christmas sale of select items suitable as gifts for your loved ones. We take pride especially in the children’s titles that we have chosen as gifts.free-shipping-
