Catalogue note:
This image appears in printed form on page 9 of America's Promise, the debut children's book by Alma Powell, published in 2001. It tells the story of bear siblings Honey and Benji moving to a new neighborhood, making new friends and participating in their community. The book was illustrated by Marsha Winborn, a Santa Fe-based illustrator who has illustrated over 35 children's books.

Powell followed up America's Promise with her second children's book, My Little Wagon, also illustrated by Winborn, in 2003.

The book shares a name with the America's Promise Alliance, which is the largest cross-sector of nonprofits and organizations in the United States dedicated to improving the lives of young people. General Colin L. Powell served as the founding chair of the organization and remained board chair until 2001, when he stepped down to become Secretary of State. Alma, General Powell's wife, became board chair in 2004, a position she still holds today.
