Asian-Pacific American Heritage Month

the lamps and the sakura by stuck in customsMay is Asian-Pacific American Heritage Month and an opportunity for us to celebrate the history of Asians and Pacific Islanders who have contributed to America’s success and those who continue to help make the United States a vibrant, unique, and culturally diverse nation. Below I’ve picked some of my most favorite books with Asian American teen voices. How will you celebrate?
