Talk Story web site

Just discovered the Talk Story blog, covering children’s and youth literature for Asian Pacific Americans and American Indians/Alaska Natives, and which has a good list of Korean and Korean American picture books, chapter books, folk tales and nonfiction targeted to children, and YA. The list isn’t comprehensive (I think Patti Kim’s book, A Cab Called Reliable, should be included), but it’s a good resource, especially for KA children’s picture books. It’s created and maintained by the American Library Association.
