Well, this is exciting! Oprah’s Book Club just released its 2010 Kids’ Reading List, full of books recommended by the American Library Association—and our very own Tofu Quilt makes an appearance!

It’s one of seven books recommended for kids ages 10 to 12, and it’s in really great company. Tofu Quilt isn’t the only book featuring people of color, either; Where the Mountain Meets the Moon by Grace Lin (who also illustrated our Where on Earth is My Bagel) is based on Chinese folklore, and One Crazy Summer by Rita Williams-Garcia is about three African American sisters in 1968 Black Panther San Francisco.

Thanks, Oprah and ALA!
