From NYT bestselling author Kelly Yang comes a picture book, adapted for audio, about Asian American changemakers doing everything they dreamed of and inspiring all of us to reach for new heights! From creating beautiful music like Yo-Yo Ma to flying to outer space like Franklin Chang-Díaz; from standing up to injustice like Fred Korematsu to becoming the first Asian American, Black and female vice president of the United States like Kamala Harris, this book illuminates the power of Asian Americans all over the country, in all sorts of fields.
Alongside the poetic main text, Yes We Will includes one-line biographies of the person or historical moment featured in the story, with extended biographies at the end. Listeners of different ages and needs can use the audiobook in different ways, from classroom discussions to bedtime listening and more.
Yes We Will answers the question, can we accomplish whatever we dream? With love, courage, determination, and lots of imagination, we can—and we will!
