Pamilya Ko: My Family in Filipino by Joy Francisco
Pamilya Ko is the fourth of the language series. Pamilya Ko introduces family terms in Tagalog/Filipino.
Filipinos place great emphasis on the solidarity of the family unit. In a Filipino household, it is common to find three generations living together. Often, grandparents play a large role in raising their grandchildren. Close familial relationships often go beyond one’s genetic connections or bloodlines to incorporate distant relatives, close neighbors, or friends. For example, it is common to hear people refer to distant relatives or non-relatives with familial terms such as ‘tita’ (aunt), ‘tito’ (uncle), ‘lola’ (grandmother) and ‘lolo’ (grandfather).
