I will never get enough of Chloe Kim snowboarding the halfpipe! She is beauty, grace, and nerves of steel.
I also loved learning about her as a normal teenager who likes Korean snacks from the Korean market. Her ability to balance her Southern California cool-girl vibe while embracing her Korean cultural identity makes her an Asian Pacific American Hero and role model for all Asian and Asian American kids including my own.
Did you know that Chloe Kim speaks three languages?! All this and more in Asian Pacific American Heroes. It’s available on the Scholastic Website and through Scholastic Bookclubs flyers.
p.s. All my Asian American Book Lists for Kids are here with some specific ethnicities broken out.
- Asian American
- Korean American
- Japanese American
- Chinese American
- South Asian American
BEST #OWNVOICES CHILDREN’S BOOKS: My Favorite Diversity Books for Kids Ages 1-12 is a book that I created to highlight books written by authors who share the same marginalized identity as the characters in their books.
