Dear Mr. President,
I am an Ecuadorian artist, living in New York City for the past nine years.
I heard you speaking about the immigration bill at the White House Rose Garden.
I identified so much with your words when you said that America is great because it is a nation of immigrants, with people from every corner of the world and that is precisely what make this country special, unique and strong.
I also strongly believe in that statement and have created an illustrated book named “Larry and Friends” to educate children and adults about immigration and integration, celebrating diversity and supporting tolerance.
I would love to send you a copy of this book, I think you might enjoy it! Please let me know if you can accept it and where should I send it!
Here is a little more info about the book:
Larry and Friends is a captivating story about immigration and integration
The protagonist, Larry the Dog, is a juggler from Brooklyn and his friends are a diverse set of animals from all over the world. The story recounts why the characters end up relocating to New York City, how they became friends with Larry and how life has taught them a thing or two.
The tale is truly inspiring; through their life stories, the whimsical characters bring forth the brightest possibilities of the human spirit.
