9780689822216: How My Family Lives in America (Aladdin Picture Books)

"In How My Family Lives in America, " author-photographer Susan Kuklin zeroes in on the source of cultural identity: the family. Meet:

Sanu, who is learning how to braid her hair and to cook the same African meal her father makes.

Eric, who loves to play baseball with his dad and to dance the "merengue" with his friends and family.

April, who works hard on her Chinese writing and tries to keep up with her family's challenging games.

Their stories emphasize the seemingly minor and everyday ways heritage is transmitted: stories, songs, games, language, special occasions. They show the importance of choice and adaptation in forging a cultural identity. And they provoke readers to examine their own families -- what makes them the same, what makes them distinct, and how this uniqueness is celebrated.

About the Author:

Susan Kuklin is a noted author and photographer of books for young children as well as for older readers. Her seven previous photo essays for Bradbury Press have been hailed as "models of photojournalism for young readers" (The New York Times Book Review), as "notable for their realistic approaches, relatively detailed text, and attractive format" (ALA Booklist), and as "excellent additions to any library" (School Library Journal). Her highly praised books for older readers include Fighting Back and What Do I Do Now? (both Putnam). Ms. Kuklin lives in New York City with her husband, Bailey.

From School Library Journal:

Kindergarten-Grade 2-- A glimpse at how three families impart a sense of ethnic identity to their children. Five-year-old Sanu's father is from Senegal. Her mother grew up in Baltimore. Sanu and her father buy food for a traditional dish he will prepare and share with other relatives. Eric and his mother were born in New York City, while his father is from Puerto Rico. When relatives gather at their house, they like to dance the merengue. April's parents were born and raised in Taiwan. On Saturdays she and her siblings go to Chinese school to learn calligraphy. All three families live in middle-class urban settings. All three children have sensitive, caring parents; two of them have strong ties with extended families. Religion is not discussed directly, but there are hints of Christian backgrounds in two cases. Each child's first-person narration is simple and uncomplicated, with occasional humorous touches. One can almost hear them speaking. The full-color photographs are well composed and serviceable. As there is a growing demand for books depicting multicultural heritages, this one will be useful. Another recent title that has a similar, although perhaps more cohesive and energetic theme is Norah Dooley's Everybody Cooks Rice (Carolrhoda, 1991) .
