From School Library Journal:

Gr 5-8-Each volume opens with a chapter that defines prejudice, stereotypes, and racism with examples. The second chapters discuss the history of prejudice against the groups of people, followed by chapters containing first-person accounts from victims. The concluding sections tell readers how to combat prejudice in themselves and others. Captioned photos and sidebars supplement the texts. The titles have a cookie-cutter feel, with all four sharing almost identical first and last chapters. There are also some content weaknesses: Jews doesn't even wade into the complicated historical and contemporary relationship between Islam and Judaism, and LGBT presents a highly controversial claim of the early Christian church officially blessing gay marriage as an established fact. These factors limit effectiveness, and the books do not stand out in a crowded field. α(c) Copyright 2011. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.

From Booklist:

These titles in the Gallup Guides for Youth Facing Persistent Prejudice series may sound as if they are aimed at members of the groups facing that prejudice. In fact, they are the opposite: a strong effort to help outsiders better understand and accept these frequently marginalized groups. Asians tracks the history of Asians in America, including their contributions as well as their struggles for equality, alongside more contemporary voices. The discussions of prejudice and diversity in these books sometimes feel aimed at a younger audience than the series otherwise seems to be targeting. However, each group’s specific stories and struggles are well treated and compelling. True stories from celebrities, community activists, and ordinary teens especially bring to life each group’s struggle for equality. Grades 5-7. --Miriam Aronin
