Asian Pacific American Heritage Month

As I was reading Grace Lin’s post Happy Asian-Pacific Heritage Month at Blue Rose Girls the other day, I thought it might be a good idea to provide links to some of Grace’s other articles that are available at her author website.

In honor of Asian Pacific American Heritage Month NEA's Read Across America has made available a bilingual reading list of books for students in kindergarten through 12th grade. The NEA's Asian American Booklist includes fiction, nonfiction, and poetry titles divided by grade level categories: Grades K-4, Grades, 5-8, and Grades 9 and Up.
