Asian-Pacific American Heritage Month

Dragon Mural by John WooMay is Asian-Pacific American Heritage Month and an opportunity for us to celebrate the history of Asian and Pacific Islander Americans who have contributed to the United States’ success and those who continue to help make America a vibrant, unique, and culturally diverse nation.  Below I’ve picked some a few books featuring Asian American teen voices.  How will you celebrate?
