Children's Books by South Asian American Writers
The children's book category may be the fastest-growing as so many South Asian Americans are focused on diversity in literature for their children. Start with board books, read them the picture books, and then delight in the chapter books that all feature characters, names, places, plots and food that reflect their lives.
For books to read to children, start with Priya Dreams of Marigolds & Masala or the Maya and Neel books. If you're looking for elementary-age children, you won't go wrong with the Kiranmala series and then the Aru Shah series.
