A picture book celebration of immigration to the United States told through the experiences of children who have come from around the world.
Children come to live in America from so many different places, and for so many different reasons . . .
Thus begins Karen Katz'sMy America. In this beautiful book, immigrant children tell their stories and share their love of where they're from and where they live now—homes old and new. Meet Taylor, who moved from South Korea to New York when he was three. Or Semeenah, who relocated from India after her mom got a job in Pennsylvania. These children talk about the foods they eat, the languages they've learned, and the sports they play, exploring the differences and similarities that link us all and represent the best of America.
