Asian Pacific American Book List

Introduction

Here you will find a comprehensive list of Asian American and Pacific Islander American children’s and young adult books.  These books have been carefully selected by the Asian Pacific American Librarians Association.  Last updated in 2018, these lists are currently under revision. We look forward to the curated lists transferring to the APALA domain later in 2021. We also look forward to the forthcoming release of our comprehensive guide for evaluating and selecting Asian American and Pacific Islander American children’s and young adult literature.
