Junko Yokota (professor at National Louis University) cited me in her latest article for Teacher Librarian (Feb 2009/v36 issue3) “Asian Americans in Literature for Children and Young Adults”!!

In this article, Yokota goes over a history of Asian diasporic representations in children’s and young adult literature, discusses emerging themes (such as adoption), persistent issues (such as stereotyping), and new or steady voices (such as Laurence Yep).

It’s a quick read, but packed with a lot of relevant, thought-provoking statements.
