I bought this book during the election because I wanted my grandchildren to remember that President Obama had been their president. This book seemed especially inviting to me for young readers. There are many actual photos used in the book, and text is very controlled. It was exactly right for my granddaughter in kindergarten and was probably a fairly easy book for my grandson in second grade. It's not always easy to find books for those children just beginning to read, and I recommend this one thoroughly!
The book has good background history on President Obama. The full color illustrations are very well done. This book is a good acquisition for primary school children. The author as done a good job in providing pertinent information on President Obama's childhood, as well as descriptions of other family members and important places to visit. The acquisition is recommended highly for anyone wishing to purchase an age appropriate book for the primary school grades. In addition, the photography is done well.
This book is excellent for allowing our grandsons to know the history behind our President and to cherish the idea of what is possible for anyone to achieve when they work hard in this incredible country.
