BookDragon Books for the Diverse Reader

The Chinese Americans by Marissa Lingen; The Japanese Americans by Jennifer Contino; The Korean Americans by Tamra Orr [in AsianWeek]

Chinese Japanese Korean Americans

Three titles from the We Came to America series from a new publishing house devoted to young adult books – some fabulous stuff, too! For the most part, all three are admirable efforts, although I have to wonder about completely idiotic comments like, “Pearl S. Buck wrote several books that helped explain the mystery of the Far East to her Western readers.” Do I hear “inscrutable,” anybody?
