Children's Booklist

 © Sharon Chang and MultiAsian Families Blog, Dec 1 2012.

And this is where I need your help. Below are some children's books that I find really adhere to the anti-bias parameters discussed. I would like this to be a working list. Books on it should be ones that particularly appeal to the multiethnic multiracial Asian children in our group. For example, perhaps they represent Asian heritage, multiethnic multiracial peoples or the struggles of people of color for social justice. Are there any anti-bias children's books you would like to add to our list? I will continue to add or remove suggestions based on your comments. Your feedback is greatly needed. I can't even pretend to assemble something comprehensive on my own. Let's get a substantial collection going here!

  "Hey Sharon...Gyo Fujikawa was a Japanese American illustrator who's family was interned during WWII, she became one of the first women to illustrate for Disney, and she was one of the first children's book illustrators to include children of many races (before it was politically correct to do so).  I thought her story was inspiring, thought you might appreciate it too!"
