The images in this stunning book are beautiful, powerful, and inspiring. Illustrator Chris Gall is the great-great-grandnephew of poet Katharine Lee Bates and grew up with her original lyrics hanging on his wall. A talented illustrator, he used digitized hand engravings to create boldly colored images of American life, history, and symbols. Some of the images include the Statue of Liberty and Sacagawea, the WWII Tuskegee Airmen and the rescue workers raising the flag on Sept. 11, 2001, and a young couple working on their family farm.

While designed in children's picture book form, this book can be shared by the entire family.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
