There have been two things causing this stress and infecting our society: the Coronavirus itself and the racism that followed. So, throughout these next few weeks, consider reading all or some of these 10 Books Featuring Asian Characters. Each was written by an Asian author and each has positive images of the Asian community that will help you counteract the racist images coming from around our nation.
To help you add to your growing collection of Colorful Pages, I have compiled a list of children’s books with Asian representation from various ethnicities and cultures. In addition, these books are also written by Asian authors! That means the stories you are hearing are #ownvoices. And, by checking out these books, you are not only supporting your students in gaining Colorful Pages, but you are also supporting authors of color.
