Geared to children age five and up, parents, elementary school teachers and librarians, the book serves as a unifying force for children in a divided country. It points out differences and similarities between American children with unique cultural backgrounds with an overarching emphasis on those elements which bind us together as a country and welcome our diversity. We are a beautiful mosaic.
I See the Sun in the USA tells the story of Stella and the children and families she meets, with a variety of ethnicities and cultures, while on a family vacation. Each child is also presented by a family tree depicting the blending of their families, hence the blending of American culture. Glorious illustrations by Judith Inglese express and enhance the story line.
