The Sultan with the Heart of Stone


For us Filipinos, the holidays are a time for family reunions. Even when we cannot see each other in person, we always find ways to speak to our loved ones, and show them how much we care.

Come and listen to this story of star-crossed lovers, forgiveness, and of families being reunited. Our story was written by Lin A. Flores and Anette Flores Garcia. It was taken from the book entitled A Child’s Treasury of Philippine Christmas Stories published by Tahanan Books, and will be read to us by Missy Maramara.
