Books with Diverse Voices
I love to share books that give a variety of perspectives on the world. November is a good month to think about immigration and what it is like to move to a new culture. Here is a list of my favorites and my original reviews:
Alvin Ho series by Lenore Look
Ruby Lu series by Lenore Look
When the Cherry Blossoms Fell by Jennifer Maruno
Fatty Legs by Christy Jordan-Fenton
A Long Walk to Water by Linda Sue Park
The Great Wall of Lucy Wu by Wendy Wan-Long Shang
The Red Thread Sisters by Carol Antoinette Peacock
Inside Out and Back Again by Thanhha Lai
Home of the Brave by Katherine Applegate
American Born Chinese by Gene Luen Yang
Dumpling Days by Grace Lin
