Asian American Childrens Literature Creators

This is a list of Asian authors (& illustrators!) creating English language picture books, middle grade, and young adult books. Inspired by Ellen Oh's #AsAmCreatorRollcall Childrens Books edition (Sep 2018). (which was in turn inspired by #AsianAugust !)

In order to make this an "Author / Creator" list, only the top book of each Author or Illustrator page is listed here. (If you are the creator and would prefer a different book listed, please add it and msg me.) Feel free to add other creators of Asian American heritage who are not already on the list.

Order is RANDOM because (a) of the way that the algorithm works and (b) the uber fans of new books who want to boost the algorithm. This is not an exhaustive list, there are a bajillion AA authored books that you haven't heard of from the last several decades. For more AsAm books, please check the tags at the bottom.

(ps Dear grammar nerds: There is no apostrophe bc url.)
