Color Us American.
Baldwin, Virginia; Hodges, Ethel
A coloring book containing drawings and information on eight different countries is designed to help children obtain cultural understanding of themselves and other persons as individuals and as members of groups within our society. The countries presented are Poland/Germany, the Navajo Nation (Native American), China, Nigeria (Africa), Mexico, Korea, Samoa, and Japan. Eight of the drawings present the girls and boys in the costume of the country each represents, and eight of the drawings show the girls and boys in modern American clothing. The information given for each country includes famous Americans with that country's ethnic background, and an ethnic food. Concluding this coloring book are recipes for the ethnic foods mentioned.
