Here is my collection of recommended Asian American children's literature with summaries and reading levels; it is by no means complete, but these are books I highly recommend in terms of content and authenticity. The Carolina Asia Center also has a fantastic, searchable database of books about Asians and Asian Americans. Don't forget to check out the National Council of the Social Studies '(NCSS) Notable Trade Books and the Guardian's list of 50 culturally diverse books. WE NEED DIVERSE BOOKS!
I recently stumbled across author Grace Lin's blog and a post by Irene Rideout about Tikki Tikki Tembo, a book that always felt problematic to me but I couldn't quite pinpoint why. This is a fascinating read that articulates why representation and cultural authenticity are critical in children's literature.
