Product description

Review

"The multicultural people pictured throughout the richly hued pages are ethical, caring, and aware of their responsibilities as citizens. There is a hopeful, uplifting tone, matched by the illustrations' rosy portrayal of the United States" - Kirkus Reviews

"What Does It Mean to Be American? is a memorable book for younger children to begin to understand our great country and its values. It is never too early to learn, or too late to be reminded, about what makes America so unique." - Mike Krzyzewski, Duke University and USA Senior National Team (2005-16) Head Coach

"I'm absolutely in love with What Does it Mean to Be American? Written by author, entrepreneur and mom Rana DiOrio along with former US Army paratrooper turned military cyber-securiity expert and dad of four, Elad Yoran, the result is truly something special. What Does It Mean to Be American dives into a complex topic with thoughtful, accessible prose. And hey, maybe it will even start meaningful conversations among adults, too." - Liz Gumbinner, Cool Mom Picks

"Mom's Choice Award Winner" -

"Reading this book with my young children and following the lessons learned will mold them into the Americans I want them to be." - Alejandro Villanueva, Pro Bowl NFL player, former US Army Ranger and decorated veteran of Afghanistan, and first generation American

"Beautifully written and vividly illustrated, this book is a great starting point for kids of all ages to ponder what being an American means to them and the common bonds that unite us all." - U.S. Senator Jack Reed

"With engaging illustrations and an accessible text, What Does It Mean to Be American? orients children to the spirit of our inclusive, optimistic country. This book is a great way to teach kids about some of our country's most important commitments." - Ganesh Sitaraman, author of The Crisis of the Middle-Class Constitution: Why Economic Inequality Threatens Our Republic, one of The New York Times' 100 Notable Books of 2017

Rana DiOrio was born in Providence, RI and grew up in a colorful Italian-American family. Her curiosity about the world began in kindergarten, while studying Western access to China and, obviously, panda bears. As a political science major/psychology minor in college, and then as a law student, she became fascinated with understanding perspective, and how just about any person, place, thing, or situation can be interpreted in so many valid ways. "I believe that I have two ears, two eyes, and one mouth intentionally, so I listen and observe more than I talk," she explains. "As a result, I think I'm better able to respect and appreciate diversity." Rana's inspiration for writing What Does It Mean To Be Global? was the election of President Barack Obama and explaining its significance, on so many levels, to her children.

Rana has written her way though life - as a student, a lawyer, an investment banker, a private equity investor, and now as an author of children's picture books. Her interests include practicing yoga, reading non-fiction, dreaming, effecting positive change, and, of course, being global. She lives in Belvedere, California with her husband and their three Little Pickles.
