Did you know Po Po (paw-paw) means grandma in Chinese? Did you know Filipino settlers were the first Asian American community? When Po Po knits, she shares parts of American history that are not often told. As her young granddaughter listens with admiration, Po Po talks about Asian Americans and how their resilience has helped shape the strength and beauty of the United States of America.

In this inspiring picture book, Po Po brings to light the hardships and discrimination that many endured in eight events that took place in American history. Accompanied by rich and colorful illustrations inspired by historical photography, Po Po wants her young granddaughter to know that not only have Asian Americans lived in the United States for centuries, but the different types of people are what make our nation unique and extraordinary. Each story has a special message and embraces the Chinese language–emphasizing that America is a culture of many cultures.
