About the Author
Kaothar Baher El-Far is an Air Force veteran and a teacher who comes from a culturally diverse family. She was born and raised on the Muscogee Creek Nation (MCN) reservation in Oklahoma. Like her mother and daughters, she is a tribe member of the MCN. She is also the daughter of a Palestinian immigrant. As a child, her diverse background and family customs made her feel like an outsider to every culture – ultimately those experiences helped her appreciate many walks of life. She set out to write this book, which her 11-year-old-daughter illustrated, to encourage children to celebrate the unique styles that make up America. You can be an American like you—I can be an American like me!
