May is Asian/Pacific American Heritage Month.
This celebration includes cultures across Asia as well as the Pacific islands of Melanesia, Micronesia and Polynesia; which means the rich diverse cultures from this region not only encompasses Japan, China, and India, but also the native culture in America’s own Hawai’i. These cultures are well represented in Eisenhower’s Kids World collection of fiction in both picture book and chapter book formats as well as in our nonfiction titles. So whether you are delving your family’s own roots or exploring a culture you are unfamiliar with, this is a great month to read!
As part of this month long celebration, a selection of great books have been assembled for your online browsing pleasure, but do stop in the Library, we have even more books to recommend!
