I got so excited to meet Ai-Ling Louie who writes and publishes children's books about famous Asian Americans. I read them all. I liked that she had chosen a variety of people. I wish I had those books when my children were growing up.
Congratulations to Nancy Adams of Indiana, winner of the 2018 New Year's Prize! Hope you like reading "Astronaut Kalpana Chawla, Reaching for the Stars".
Ai-Ling Louie beautifully captures Patsy's inspiring story, and reminds us that every girl, no matter where she is from, can make a difference in the world.
