Believers in America: poems about Americans of Asian and Pacific islander descent
Through poetry (a child-centered, child-responsive format), these beautifullyillustrated, multicultural books tell the story of many courageous Americans -- African Americans, Latino Americans, Native Americans, and Americans of Asian and Pacific Islander descent -- women and men who followed their dreams to create a better life...not just for themselves, but for others as well. Although their experiences often were difficult, they did not allow prejudice and discrimination to thwart their progress. They have helped build our nation, defend it, and lead it into the 21st century.
Celebrate the accomplishments of Patsy Takemoto Mink, Dr. An Wang, and the valiant 100/442nd Regimental Combat Team.
