The carabao is clean, friendly, helpful and well-loved by everyone. So may admirable traits that little children can imbibe! This book is perfect for toddlers or anyone learning basic Filipino.
You'll also love it's prequel, Ang Maliit na Kalabaw, where the little carabao teaches good manners and right conduct, Pinoy style!
ALEXINE: In 1996, when college school mates found out I was from the province, city girls would ask whether carabaos were our primary form of transportation. Twenty years later, it's probably even harder for children now to actually see carabaos, so I encourage everyone to introduce this kind and gentle creature even just through this book. A lot of farmers in rural areas still rely on carabaos.
