TeachAAPI is excited to collaborate with Children's Book World in presenting our inaugural DK-2 grade Book Club! Through our Book Club series, we hope to share the joy of diverse stories, experiences and perspectives to inspire this next generation of readers, learners, creators and leaders. 

TeachAAPI is a group of LA-based parents who are building a community to foster awareness and education for AAPI-related cultural and racial issues within our schools.

We believe that leveraging the strength of a shared AAPI identity through connection, communication and celebration leads to great things for future generations of all children. We work to increase access to AAPI literature, art, thought leaders and educational resources so future generations of AAPI children will be better equipped to establish a strong sense of self, advocate for themselves and be capable allies for others.
