Yang Warriors


written by Kao Kalia Yang University of Minnesota Press 2021


"A breathtaking book." — Star Tribune


"The illustrations are by a Hmong American who researched and achieved a style that fits beautifully and enhances the text. The gentle images use vibrant colors and a mystical touch." — Martha’s Bookshelf


"Yang Warriors by Kao Kalia Yang and illustrated by Billy Thao has so much to love. Starting with the fact that it shows that fierce, determined, compassionate — and of course committed — children can be heroes too... The reviews describe the hope, resilience and inspiration this story holds, while offering an excellent history lesson that isn’t often covered in elementary school history classes." — Cool Mom Picks
