The House of the Americas

thru the eyes of children

This page was inspired by many letters and drawings received from children who visited the Building of the Organization of American States, called the House of the Americas. The Letters and Illustrations presented here were received from fourth grade students of the Valley Elementary School in Jefferson, Maryland, who wrote describing their impression after their tour of the building.  We hope that other children reading these pages will teach them about the OAS and its member countries.

(These drawings were compiled in a publication to commemorate the International Year of the
Child in 1979)
