Reading Together Book Project

The Reading Together Book Project, a collaboration of the Council on Asian Pacific Minnesotans and the Minnesota Humanities Center, seeks to address the lack of children’s books that speak to the experience of being an Asian Pacific Islander (API) child or youth in the United States. The project supports the development of English literacy skills while recognizing cultural heritage, and creating opportunities for children and families to learn about API cultural heritage together. The project will disseminate resources targeted towards closing the achievement gap for API students by offering culturally relevant resources.
