Author/Illustrator Allen Say

We’re celebrating Asian Pacific American Heritage Month! 

Allen Say has written many children’s books that highlight his Japanese heritage. He came to the United States as a teenager and became a prolific writer. Say draws from personal experiences to create wonderful stories for children. Pictured here is The Bicycle Man, which describes a memorable post-World War II event from his childhood.  His book Grandfather’s Journey won the Caldecott Medal in 1994.
