This is my Story at TED conference. Sue Klebold – School counselor. The last time I heard my son’s voice was when he walked out the front door on his way to school. He called out one word in the darkness: Bye. It was April 20, 1999. I’m trying to understand how his suicidal thinking led to murder. After a lot of reading and talking with experts, I have come to believe that his involvement in the shootings was rooted not in his desire to kill but in his desire to die. The third challenge I have when I talk about my son’s murder-suicide is that I’m talking about mental health - excuse me - is that I’m talking about mental health, or brain health, as I prefer to call it, because it’s more concrete. And in the same breath, I’m talking about violence

A young boy named Serhiy explains the culture, family life, and religion of Ukraine and how it compares to his new home in Wisconsin.

"This Is My Story" is a series published by Weekly Reader Early Learning Library, which very aptly introduces young readers (ages 9-12) to children who immigrated to the United States. Each book in the series focuses on one country wherein a child shares his/her personal story depicting the differences and similarities as seen by them between living in the United States and living in their country of origin. Books in the "This Is My Story" series include those on: Afghanistan, Chile, South Korea, and Ukraine. Found in the juvenile nonfiction literature department of public libraries, this series shouldn't be limited to kids ages 9-12, for even those older are sure to enjoy them, learn from them, and wish to explore in greater detail the countries showcased.

The cover of "I Come from Ukraine (This Is My Story)" features Serhiy in his classroom in his new home in Milwaukee, Wisconsin; the bottom of the cover shows the blue and yellow flag of Ukraine, Serhiy's country of origin in Eastern Europe. Large colorful, crisp images together with large fonts encourage young readers to delve into discovering the differences and similarities for themselves.

Educational throughout, geography skills are encouraged with simple, colorful maps (Ukraine and the countries which border Ukraine in Eastern Europe; and, the United States, with the states shown and Wisconsin highlighted); reading proficiency is promoted by leveled text (text in bold is further explained in a glossary); and, the content features cultures, foods, and religions.

The Table of Contents in front and the Index in the back outline various topics covered. Serhiy's story is a personal one and shows lots of color images to enhance visually his story via prose.

A section called, For More Information, gives good reference sources for additional information about Ukraine. Two of the books mentioned in this section are Ukraine in Pictures--please see my review of Jeffrey Zuehlke's book and my images of Ukraine, which I took there in 1993 and 1994; another book to explore is called Welcome to Ukraine (Welcome to My Country series)--please see my review of this fine book.

To see samples of Ukrainian children's art, visit the web address given; to sample sounds of lots of traditional Ukrainian music (all music was recorded live), a web address is also given.

Author, Valerie J. Weber, lives in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, and has been writing for children and adults over twenty-five years. She's done a fine job with "I Come from Ukraine (This Is My Story)" which is a professional presentation that's informative and sure to enthrall readers both young and those young at heart.

Heartily recommended, "I Come from Ukraine (This Is My Story)" definitely deserves five stars!

Addendum: Children may enjoy other books on Ukrainian topics, which I've reviewed--many of them have images taken by me in Ukraine. There are currently fifteen books listed on my Listmania list entitled, "Children's Corner--for the Young and the Young at Heart..." Sometimes, there are several editions of one book, so be sure to find the ones with a review by Mandrivnyk.

Readers, you're invited to visit each of my reviews--most of them have photos that I took in Ukraine (over 600)--you'll learn lots about Ukraine and Ukrainians. The image gallery shows smaller photos, which are out of sequence. The preferable way is to see each review through my profile page since photos that are germane to that particular book/VHS/DVD are posted there with notes and are in sequential order.

To visit my reviews: click on my pseudonym, Mandrivnyk, to get to my profile page; click on the tab called review; scroll to the bottom of the section, and click on see all reviews; click on each title, and on the left-hand side, click on see all images. The thumbnail images at the top of the page show whether photos have notes; roll your mouse over the image to find notes posted.
