Sura Siu narrates this picture book highlighting the accomplishments of 18 famous Asian Americans. The musicians, politicians, athletes, and others range from designer Vera Wang to architect I.M. Pei. Asian-Americans have made their mark on the U.S. in many fields. The audiobook consists of a simple sentence about each person--their name, an action verb, and the reason for their action. This likely works well in print with the benefit of images; however, in audio, it sounds a bit like a list. The best section of the audio version is the extensive author's note, which includes additional Asian-American history and more detailed biographical sketches. Siu's uplifting tone suggests pride and promise. L.T. © AudioFile 2022, Portland, Maine [Published: AUGUST 2022]
