THE KAYABANG LOVE BASKET: A multicultural literature which represents our distinct cultural group

Red, Sam, and Annika were curiously scanning the pages of the book "The Kayabang Love Basket". Just like the many other children who were born and raised overseas, they would occassionally come back home for visits and they get integrated with their ancestry in the Cordillera Region, Philippines.
How else could we educate our children about their roots but to make them read books which we ourselves had written based from our culturally rich oral tradition..?

The introduction of multicultural literature which represents our distinct cultural group is needed to enlighten the future generation about their heritage through the accurate portrayal of their future in rich detail.
