Grace Caligtan, Compile, B. M. (2015). The Tale of Lam-Ang and the Fire Giant. Retrieved from

Completed through panagtitinolong (Ilocano for collective heroism, or bayanihan in Tagalog), this eBook was co-created by students and adults who learned and discussed the ways in which any large task can be completed with the unity of many. Students from Kalihi Uka Elementary's Reading and Art Club read this story out loud and drew pictures of scenes in the book. Some of these children's art works have been incorporated as illustrations for this eBook.

Lam-Ang and the Fire Giant is the tale of a mythical hero who worked together with animals to secure fire for his village. Once popular among earlier generations, this story makes a come-back in the form of modern re-telling for young audiences who are now living in the digital age. This work is an act of remembering and re-calling for those younger generations who may not be familiar with Filipino legends.

The reader takes a journey with Lam-Ang to learn, honor and work with everyone’s unique gifts to achieve a common goal.
