This is a powerful, poetic look at the struggles America has gone through as this country has grown. Included in "We Are America" are quotes from founding fathers and illustrations that to those familiar with our history, recall famous Americans, and groups of people who are often disenfranchised. There are no smiles on the faces of those depicted in this account. This is not a book about patriotism or marching bands or the music or celebrations that also are part of our culture. Not for younger children, and while I have not read it with my grandchildren yet, somewhat uncertain as to it's appeal to any age group. Wondering who the target audience is.

It seemed like a nice book. However,it had been water damaged and I had to return it.
It was in no condition to be given as a gift.

I shared this beautifully written and illustrated book with 3rd and 4th graders. They loved the artwork and recognized many historical figures. I used the book to initiate whole-class conversations on what it means to be American in a largely first/second generation immigrant school community. The children were thoroughly engaged and fascinated by this gorgeous book and the discussion that ensued. Many children saw themselves/their families/home countries in the illustrations. The read-aloud also elicited many questions about the time periods in which various scenes took place. While there's more text than I would read to younger kids in one sitting, I'm sure younger children would gain lots from talking about the illustrations and reading selected portions of the text. This would be a thought-provoking independent read, read-aloud or group read for older students, as well.

Pairing free verse poetry with painterly illustrations, as well as inspirational quotations, Walter Dean and Christopher Myers chronicle American landscape and life from its earliest origins to the present. This gem of a book captures the dream and heart and promise of America for children ages 5-8.

Found this book at the elementary school's book fair and am using it in my class. Absolutely beautiful. A great hook when introducing a unit lesson, especially on immigration (for older children) or American history in general (4th grade). A variety of project one can use with this book as well. An outstanding book!
