Picture Books by Asian Creators

 

Heartbroken about the awful things that have been happening to our Asian community right now.  
Our human family is stronger when we circle up with love. 

Here are my wildebeests a few years back with their Halmoni. We love her so much.  
Let's stand with our Asian community. Support Asian creators. Support Asian businesses. 
Stand up, speak up if you see hate happening.  
 
Sending out so much love 
to my Asian friends & family right now.

Here are other ways to help: https://stopaapihate.org

Another way we can help is to listen to Asian voices, 
read & share Asian creatives’ work.
