An American Face

Jan Czech

An American Face Jessie excitedly looked in the mirror and wondered, "What will my new face look like?" He stood on the plastic stool by the sink and traced his eyes with his finger. "Goodbye, old face," he whispered. Adopted from Korea, Jessie waits for the day he will get his American citizenship and, he thinks, an American Face. This adorably illustrated book sweetly describes his touching transition.

Ages 4-8, illustrated by Frances Clancy.
