Virginia Yang wanted a cross-cultural bilingual book that she could read to her newborn. Growing up in San Francisco’s Chinatown, she learned at an early age the importance of hearing Chinese tones to aid in fluency, so she created Jet’s Books. Jet’s Books hopes to teach children multiple languages while keeping Asian traditions and cultures alive with the next generation of Asian-Americans.
