Children’s Book World has for over three decades made it our mission to have every child see themselves reflected on our bookshelves. Our hope is that this recorded panel can be used by teachers, librarians, and communities across the country who are facing challenges to kid's books and anti-Asian violence and prejudice.
Our partner TeachAAPI has a mission like ours of community building. Through events, in person, virtually and by sharing resources, they create a space where children, parents and people who identify with an AAPI culture can find a sense of belonging, confidence and pride in themselves and a better understanding of people who may look like them or share a similar background. They believe this sense of belonging and understanding are critical tools to building self advocacy skills in life.
