|About the Book|
An American Face is a picture book about becoming an American citizen. Jesse believes that he will get a new face when he becomes American, but then realizes that his face will not change. He is proud of who he is in the end of the book and that his face stayed the same. I think that this would be a good book for an early reader. The topic of this book is adoption and becoming an American citizen. An American Face would be a book that I would use for a read-aloud. There are some social issues that arise in this book. Jesse does not get picked to play on Charlies soccer team because he does not like the way Jesse looks. The pictures interact and convey what is being read.
