Seventeen years ago, the events of 9/11 made me realize how much I love this country and that I am actually quite patriotic. Having driven across this country four times and seen so many amazing places and met many great people, I can’t help but love it even more. During my year of reading children’s books, I came across the book I’m sharing today. Blue Sky White Stars* by Sarvinder Naberhaus and illustrated by Kadir Nelson brought me to tears upon reading. Despite being short on words (a total of 68), the images and contrasts are starking and moving. It is an amazing picture of our country, with all its diversity.
If you’re looking for a book to share the vastness of our great country with your kids or if you want a beautiful book about this old U S of A, this is the book for you.
As a reminder, the links to the book on Amazon are affiliate links. As a reminder, an affiliate link is one that if you click and purchase the book (or something else) I’ll receive a small percentage at no additional cost to you. I ruthlessly only share products, services, books, etc, that I have personally used and only recommend what I think is useful and valuable.
