The United States of America is one of the most diverse countries in the world, with more than 326 million people of different faiths, cultures and ethnic groups. In I See the Sun in the USA, the newest installment of the I See the Sun series, readers are introduced to Stella, a young girl from Los Angeles, California who is helping her mother make a video about families living in the United States.

Stella travels to Mount Rushmore with her mom and meets Rosa from Alabama, Jamal from Massachusetts, Kristin from Iowa, and Martha from South Dakota. Each child describes a typical day in their life to Stella, which is supported by colorful collage illustrations.

With an increase in political divisiveness in the USA today, this book offers young readers the opportunity to learn that although there may be differences from family to family, the basic aspects of everyday life are similar in every state. Children enjoy playing with their friends, they learn new things in school and at home, and they appreciate spending time with their families.
