About the Reading Together Project

The Reading Together Project seeks to address the lack of children’s books that speak to the experience of being an Asian Pacific Islander (API) child or youth in the United States. The project supports the development of English literacy skills while recognizing cultural heritage, and creating opportunities for children and families to learn about API cultural heritage together. The project will disseminate resources targeted towards closing the achievement gap for API students by offering culturally relevant resources.

 These events are funded with money from the Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund and  the National Endowment for the Humanities that was created by a vote of the people of

Minnesota on November 4, 2008.
