Annotation: Celebrate the diversity of the United States! There is no typical American child. Children may share similar activities and pastimes, but they represent a variety of ethnic, cultural, and religious backgrounds. Striking photographs showcase fifty-one cities--one from each state, as well as our nation's capital, Washington, D.C. The photos and facts feature common activities and interests, as well as varied foods, languages, entertainment, sports, and other examples of daily life throughout the country. Published in conjunction with The Global Fund for Children (www.globalfundforchildren.org). Part of the proceeds from this book's sales will be donated to The Global Fund for Children to support community-based organizations that serve the world's most vulnerable children and youth.
