    As an American expat, with your kids living in diverse and beautiful countries out there, it is hard to slow down the pace and consider how well-connected is your child to USA culture and traditions.

    Help your kid connect to your origins in this unique children book for American expats
  • If you are an American expat parent you must read below:

    No matter how you would call or define your child, an American kid, an expat child or a third culture child, he or she is growing up between two or more cultures. There is your US culture. There is the culture of the home country you are currently residing in. There is the culture of your partner if he or she is coming from a different culture and there can be in many instances the culture of the company employing you or your partner. Your child gets exposed in various doses to all of those cultures. This is the story of his or her life. It is a mixture that leaves your child in the middle, sometimes confused, sometimes feeling I do not belong here, sometimes feeling like he has no strong roots anywhere. It is essential then to initiate regular discussions together focusing on topics related to your family heritage, your American roots, the differences, and why they exist. Beyond the talks, being part of an American expat community can help as the kid, at an early age is looking to his/her family and the surrounding environment (read community) and tries to mirror the two of them.  The personalised children book Journey to the USA gets you going with fun and entertaining illustrations for the little one, supported by open questions and descriptive dialogue, all centred around the US and the journey to get there.

    Another aspect is related to the American military kids, the children born and/or growing up in American bases in different countries of the world. Despite having a tight community, the feelings of belonging and confusion are still there. There is an outside world, across the base camp, there is a larger outside world where other family relatives live, and there is the family environment. It is essential to share with the American kids in these situations the beautiful adventures and memories linking you back to the US, understand the traditions, what defines the US culture. With our beautiful illustrated storybook, we aim to achieve just that. The book encourages you to go further and experience sharing and preparing a typical meal together, share the particularities of the place you were born in the USA and other spots across the country where family relatives live, or you like them for particular reasons. This kids' book aims to make natural the feeling of proud to be an American while telling your own story.
