"The All About Asia series is the children's version of a folklore handbook, a user-friendly encyclopedia, a DIY manual for experiencing an Asian country's culture from a youth's point of view."
"The large format and attractive, cartoonlike illustrations provide an inviting look at a country not often included in many other resources for children." --Kirkus
"If you are looking to teach your children about one of the most diverse, friendly and fun cultures in the world, then you must get All About The Philippines..." --The Baby Spot Magazine
"This latest offering in Tuttle's All About... series is the strongest yet and much needed." --School Library Journal
"One of the nicest aspects of the book is the stress on the different ethnicities all coming together to enrich and form the one country of the Philippines. We talked about how similar this is to our own community where my kids have friends from Japan, Belgium, China and India, who love to play together...Overall, I would highly recommend this book for a colorful and engaging introduction to the Philippines." --Schools 'N More blog
"Full-color watercolor illustrations by Dandan-Albano are a perfect complement to the text, brimming with recognizable details and the ebullient colors and liveliness that are hallmarks of Filipino culture. Plenty of hands-on art projects, recipes (all of which will require adult supervision), and activities make this book a truly interactive lesson in geography." --Booklist
"This book would be great for a family to read together--as it has both engaging, but short bursts of content and fun, inviting pictures. All About the Philippines touches on food, holidays, games, and even includes a few recipes." --International Examiner
