SHINING A LIGHT Celebrating 40 Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders Who Changed the World

by | Read by David Lee Huynh

Children Ages 8+ • 1.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2023

An impressive array of notable Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders take center stage in this wide-ranging biographical collection. Narrator David Lee Huynh sets the tone with his compelling portrayal of the valuable contributions to our society made by those of AAPI heritage throughout recent history. Describing people who range from familiar figures like Kristi Yamaguchi and Bruce Lee to the less-well-known, such as Channapha Khamvongsa and Bhagat Singh Thind, these 40 brief biographies provide insightful overviews of their lives and accomplishments. Huynh's bright, clear phrasing and enthusiasm are wonderfully engaging. He makes evident his dedication to providing the correct pronunciation of each proper name in all the cultures represented. The historical glossary provided by pdf would have been a welcome addition to the narration. N.M. © AudioFile 2023, Portland, Maine [Published: JULY 2023]
