I am Hapa

I am Hapa

by Crystal Smith

“Hapa”, a term originates in Hawaii, is used to describe a person of partial Asian or Pacific Islander descent. Today, the multiracial population in the United States is growing faster than at any other time in history. As many as 17 million Americans identify themselves as of more than one race. Many children are confronted with their identities, especially when questioned about “being different”. 

With delightful photographs, “I am Hapa” encourages children to look within themselves and appreciate the diverse cultures and ethnicities that make each person special. It is the first trilingual children’s book in English, Spanish and Chinese celebrating the multiracial and multicultural experience.
