Asian Pacific American Heritage Books for Kids
May is the time to celebrate the wonderfully diverse cultures of the Asian Pacific. The term Asian Pacific includes over 25 different countries, including China, Japan, Vietnam, Korea and Thailand, to name a few.
Our book list spans many of the Asian Pacific countries, including stories about an unlikely friendship brought about by the tsunami, a Chinese wedding, a boat ride from Hong Kong and baseball therapy, and many more.
A loving mother asks animals from a water buffalo to a lizard to "hush" so her baby can sleep. Once the noises stop, the mother herself sleeps - and the baby is now awake! Textured illustrations evoke the Thai setting and convey the understated humor of this unique bedtime book.
