Celebrate Asian American, Native Hawaiian, and Pacific Islanders Heritage Month With This Wonderful Site From Capstone Full Of Resources, Including A Preview Of Bao Phi's Forthcoming Book

In May, we celebrate Asian American, Native Hawaiian and Pacific Islanders Heritage Month. 

Our friends at Capstone have put together an amazing site to help all of us celebrate and learn more about these cultures. You can find it here.

As Capstone shares online, 

May is Asian American and Native Hawaiian/Pacific Islander Heritage Month, an opportunity to celebrate the rich history, cultural diversity, and achievements of Asian Americans, Native Hawaiians, and Pacific Islanders (AANHPI) in the United States. The AANHPI community includes over 50 ethnicities in the U.S. with their own distinct histories, cultures, traditions, and languages. With the dramatic surge in anti-Asian violence, amplifying AANHPI voices and bringing attention to their experiences is more important than ever before.

Join us in lifting up and celebrating the AANHPI community this month and throughout the year. We’re sharing a preview of award-winning author Bao Phi’s forthcoming picture book poem, You Are Life, essays about representation from authors Saadia Faruqi and V.T. Bidania, as well as featuring some of our favorite book recommendations by Asian American authors and fun freebies for your classroom or library.

Let me show you what they have included on the AANHPI site. 
Capstone has many wonderful books to celebrate AANHPI. You can explore them here
One of the books I am most excited about is Bao Phi's forthcoming picture book poem, You Are Life, illustrated by Hannah Li.
You will find a special preview here...
...and a beautiful poster to download. 
You will find a new preview video here too. 
Two of our favorite Capstone authors, Saadia Faruqi and...
...V.T. Bidania, wrote important essays for all of us to read and share with our communities. 
And you can't miss all of the awesome Educator Resources and Downloadables including posters, bookmarks, readers guides, 
...and fun author posters that our readers will love.
