What children’s books have you enjoyed recently? This weekend I found a few new books for us written by Asian and Asian-American authors, and the boys loved them.
The first standing: Eyes kissing in the corners by Joanna Ho and illustrated by Dung Ho. How beautiful is this title? We also liked it a lot A different pond by Bao Phi and illustrated by Thi Bui; When the cousins came by Katie Yamasaki; and The name jar by Yangsook Choi.
If the children in your life are ready for chapter books, Superbetle by S. Michele Chen looks amazing. It tells the story of an eight-year-old girl who visits her grandmother in Taiwan. She finds out that her grandmother is considering closing her dumpling shop because she feels too old to run it. Plus, a giant multi-colored beetle is sitting in the tub! One thing that is cool about Superbeetle is that the author explains how to pronounce certain Mandarin Chinese words in the story.
I would love to hear more recommendations, if you have them. XOXO
