Synopsis

Filipino Americans by Jon Sterngass

In the early 2000s, Filipinos made up the second-largest immigrant group in the United States and the third largest in Canada. Filipino immigrants in the early 1900s worked as agricultural laborers in California and Hawaii, cannery workers in Alaska and Washington, and sailors in the U.S. Navy. Since 1970, they have played crucial roles in such fields as computer programming and nursing. Filipinos strive to balance the homeland concepts of pakikisama (smooth social interaction) and bayanihan (cooperative work) with American individualism and materialism. Enhanced by full-color photographs and a generous array of study features, this much-needed book examines the history, culture, trials, and successes of a group sometimes referred to as invisible immigrants.

We love Lovereading as my 5 year old loves to read new books before anyone else has a chance, she says it makes reading exciting!

Tracey Chorley

I love all the books they recommend & put up for me to review. I also love the fact that they give new authors the chance to share their boo

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.

Nickey and Tomasz Hawryszczuk

It is fantastic, you get to read lots of books and you always find something new and amazing in them.

Erica Motoc, age 7

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.

Angela East

It’s a community united by a passion for books and promoting the best there is in children’s literature.

Sam Bateman and family

It has introduced my children to books we hadn’t come across before. Real children’s reviews gives a great insight into what others think to

Lorraine Woods

I have told all my friends, family & teachers to see for themselves just how great the site is. Without fail, they are hugely impressed.
