I am always delighted to help find books for kids. I received an email asking for book recommendations for Japanese themed and Japanese/English bi-lingual books and this is what I came up with.
A list of favorite picture books that are not widely known.
It was strange to me that many important Japanese American stories were not told by Japanese Americans. I tried, therefore, to focus my Top 10: Japanese American Children’s Books list on lesser known authors telling important stories. I hope this list will inspire more authors in this genre!
