A Kid's Guide to Asian American History: More Than 70 Activities (Google eBook)
Hands-on activities, games, and crafts introduce children to the diversity of Asian American cultures and teach them about the people, experiences, and events that have shaped Asian American history. This book is broken down into sections covering American descendents from various Asian countries, including China, Japan, Korea, Philippines, India, Vietnam, Laos, and Cambodia. Topics include the history of immigration from Asian countries, important events in U.S. history, sidebars on famous Asian Americans, language lessons, and activities that highlight arts, games, food, clothing, unique celebrations, and folklore. Kids can paint a calligraphy banner, practice Tai Chi, fold an origami dog or cat, build a Japanese rock garden, construct a Korean kite, cook bibingka, and create a chalk rangoli. A time line, glossary, and recommendations for Web sites, books, movies, and museums round out this multicultural guide.

LibraryThing ReviewUser Review - LibraryThing
This book includes more than 70 hands-on activities, games, and crafts that teach children about the people, experiences, and events that shaped Asian American history. It also includes a timeline. I rate this book 5/5 because it is very important for children to learn about other cultures besides their own and this book does a great job at using hands-on activities to do so.
Review: A Kid's Guide to Asian American History: More than 70 ActivitiesUser Review - Michele - Goodreads
I know nothing about history and tune it out when I read anything historic. Written for kids, it kept my attention and I now know a tiny bit of history. This was pretty interesting. Did you know Norah Jones is Ravi Shankar's daughter?? Read full review
