Little Misha in Big America Aleksandr D.

Little Misha in BIG America

By Aleksandr D Vaysman

The idea for this book was born in 2013, during a conversation with a good friend, born and bred in the USA. I was describing my connection to the world I left behind, and though it was a subject completely foreign to him, it resonated. At that moment, I understood that I have to bring this story to the kids of America. This is a story about perseverance through strong family connections and building on one's past. This is a story of immigration as seen through the eyes of a child. This is my story, and perhaps your story too!
