Executive Team, Leon Seemann, Margo Brenner Collins, and Chil Kong are honored that Adventure can be an ally in the work to fight anti-Asian racism and create a space for children be able to discuss this subject. Says Kong, "As a Korea American, bringing this book to Storytime is personal. I'm grateful for so many-including proud voices like Joyce, Emily, and Maggie-who are showing us a better future."
