Asian Pacific Islander Heritage Month

In this book, author Minh Le and illustrator Dan Santat weave together a beautiful story about finding connections and celebrating differences. The Asian grandfather and grandson in the story lack a common language and seek to bridge their communication divide through their shared love of art. The story has roots in the childhood experiences of the author and illustrator with their own grandparents. The author is Vietnamese American, and the illustrator is Thai American.
