[Book Filter] Does anyone have recommendations of books that are either about Laos, or starring characters that are Laotian?

I have a student in my 5th grade class whose parents and grandparents emigrated from Laos and is interested in reading about experiences of people who live in Laos. Books can be either fiction or non-fiction, but fiction is preferred. He is probably a little behind grade level in his reading ability, so a book that is good for 3rd or 4th graders would be preferable. Optional: Adult or Young Adult books on the same subject that I could read on my own and discuss with him.
Books that I have read that are somewhat related to Laos: The Spirit Catches You and You Fall Down
and First They Killed My Father
