Summary

America, do you love me?

Acclaimed author-artist Daria Peoples-Riley invites readers to answer timely--and timeless--questions beating inside the hearts of children across America. Exquisitely illustrated, with a powerful, lyrical text, America, My Love, America, My Heart will challenge readers of all ages to examine and evaluate personal beliefs and attitudes toward the many different colors of America.

America, do you love me? My black. My brown. My pride. My crown.

What begins as a single question from a single child multiplies as America, My Love, America, My Heart sweeps across the country with every page turn, inviting in more and more children of color--and their questions. Does America love them when they speak? Or whisper? Or shout? When they stand? Does America love them just as they are?

Inspired by the questions of her own childhood, author and artist Daria Peoples-Riley has created a powerful and important book for Americans of all ages--an essential addition to every bookshelf and classroom. Her poetic text encourages readers to confront bias, prejudice, and discrimination and invites readers to reflect and respond with their own answers, while honoring the identities of black and brown children and people of color.

The unforgettable monochromatic oil paintings incorporate patriotic colors--red, white, and blue--to evoke deeply felt emotion and unique perspective. This rich, resonant book is a conversation starter for children, for families, for classrooms, and for communities.

Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "A Black child questions the true meaning of America as she repeats the Pledge of Allegiance in school each day. Are we really one nation, with liberty and justice for all? She asks America: "Do you love my black? Do you love my brown?" While celebrating the culture and words of her Louisiana Creole, Spanish, and Black heritage, she wonders if everyone is truly treated the same in America. Illustrations done in oil paint and graphite use a palette of red, blue, and gray and show people in the city, the country, in church, in our nation's capital, and in the fields and forests of our country from one shore to another. Back matter includes photos of the author's Creole great-grandmother and grandmother. Concluding notes explain how the effects of racism have made her feel different, and also detail her hope to live in a country that embraces variations in skin color, language, and religion. Pair this with All Because You Matter (2020) by Tami Charles and Bryan Collier."

Publisher's Weekly Review: "End papers featuring the Pledge of Allegiance scrawled over the U.S. flag bookend Peoples-Riley's moving, incisive consideration of America's past and present treatment of its Black and brown inhabitants. Intertwining lyrical lines of English, Louisiana Creole, and Spanish, she offers the first-person narration of a child who loves their country, and who wonders about the nation's reciprocity: "Do you love my black?/ Do you love my brown? Do you love my throne?/ Do you love my crown?" reads a recto page, as the verso shows two figures in the shadow of an eagle. Oil and graphite art features people of color amid landscapes, church, and school, in shades of red, white, and blue against gray backgrounds, emphasizing both the narrator's pride in America and the questions of marginalized people living there: "Do you love my brave? Do you love my bold?" A powerful picture book interrogation. Back matter includes an author's note revealing personal inspiration. Ages 4--8. (Apr.)"
