About the Author

Brooklyn Wright is a 6 year old first grade student from Atlanta GA. Brooklyn first had the idea of doing a maze after learning how difficult it is to become the President; she added It s like this maze which she was working on at that time. From there she drew a maze where Mr. Obama was on one side and the White House was on the other and the rest is history. She began compiling different activities she enjoyed doing. She loves playing with paper dolls and included one with both Sasha and Malia (The first Daughters). Brooklyn is now working on her second activity book. Brooklyn loves to read, write and play sports. She inspires to be an Actress or a Doctor.

This is a fabulous coloring and activity book. It reminds me of all the best things from the Highlights Magazine (the best part of going to the dentist). Not only is there the story of who Barack Obama is, but the entire book is about him and his charming family, instead of only a couple of pages, as was the case in a different Obama coloring book I bought. It would be a very cool keepsake of this historical time, so buy one for yourself and one for all the kids in your life!

Inside you will find very fun things to do- not just coloring but dot-to-dot, mazes, picking out which items are different, coloring by number, matching objects, finding things in the oval office (which probably really does look like that now with 2 kids living in the white house). There is much more to do as well- paper dolls, finger puppets, and even tic-tack-toe.

As an artist, I LOVE the fact that there are grids that can teach you to draw with remarkable accuracy. I don't recall seeing that in a book for young kids before. And you can draw in Barack's face as well before you color that page.

As a mom, I really love the motivational pages- like the page that says YES YOU CAN be anything you want with many career possibilities to color. I also really loved the Obama play money. Playing store was a favorite activity of my kids. There is a page where you can fill in what YOU would do if you were president, which really gets kids to think.

I also love the pages on Michelle and the kids. I have not admired a woman more than Michelle in a very long time. My generation had to work much harder as women than men did, in order to prove we were equal to them and could do the same jobs.

This activity book is a great source for kids to learn about President Obama. I must say I was suprised by this fact. I purchased it for my son only because I found out that it came from a 6 year old. I believe in supporting our youth. Congratulation to the little writer, for a job well done.

I purchased this for my daughter who is 8. After receiving the book it was so nice that I didn't want her to mark in it. I am now purchasing another in hopes to one day meet the author a 6 year to haver her sign it. The book is very educational and the fact that it was an idea of African American 6 year is a bonus. Very well done young lady. I would like to shake your hand.
