Redirect: Asian American Children's Literature

My thoughts this evening:

I've started following Kimchi Mamas. Lots of good stuff here. Today there was a post that links to a HUGE list of Asian American Children's Literature that further categorizes the books into specific groups (Vietnamese, Filipino, Hawaiian and Pacific Islander, etc.) Of course, there's a little Taiwanese and Taiwanese American collection as well.

Thinking a lot about less of a focus on adoption themed children's books (because they are obviously written from the viewpoint of adoptive parents and FOR ADOPTIVE PARENTS, 'cause that's who's buying them) and more on literature that is written by Asian Americans. If you are interested in Asian American Children's Literature, be sure to check out the link to Dr. Sarah Park's blog.
