First published in 1994, prior to the closing of the Thai refugee camps, A Boy Named Chong is the first bilingual Hmong children's book depicting the refugee journey through the eyes of a young boy. The text now serves as a historical perspective of the Hmong resettlement in America. The text is written in an easy to understand limerick style which has also been put to music and lends itself nicely to dramatic interpretation. Words and music are included at the back of the text. Our students created a puppet show and formed a traveling troupe which performed this and other Hmong stories at local schools and libraries. We were also featured on WI Public Television! This 40 page bilingual Hmong/English book features seventeen black and white drawings by Hmong artist Ya Lee. PDF format.
