Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Kindergarten-Grade 5—This title uses inspirational verse and illustrations to introduce readers to the president. The poetry itself is contrived and vague unless supplemented with "Barack's Story," presented in prose at the end of the book. The flat illustrations are out of order as Barack, shown as a young child in a classroom with an airplane drawing, is placed after two images in which he is depicted as a teen and an intermediate student. Lacking depth, the artwork does not generate interest or complement the text, and none of the people depicted are identified. Children are invited to submit inspirational stories about their dreams and President Obama. Several examples from children are appended along with a message from the author. Nikki Grimes's Barack Obama: Son of Promise, Child of Hope (S & S, 2008) is a much better choice.—Nancy Baumann, Indian Paintbrush Elementary, Laramie, WY

Review

“Children must be empowered to know for sure that they can change the world. Charisse has captured this incredible moment in history by writing a book that allows young people to see themselves in President Obama.”  —Hill Harper, author, The Conversation and The Wealth Cure

Format: Hardcover
I am GLAD I am not barack obama. He has done far too much damage to our country with his promised change. The book comes off as an extention of his svengali brainwashing and mental spinning of America! Looking for our country to become whole and move away from this lunacy. The good , bad and ugly of our country is still better than the lunacy unleashed by this administration and this new thinking. Wake up and back awar from this insanity! Don't read this poison.

I readily admit that I haven't read this book.

But if I ever catch this "teacher" within 100 feet of my children, she & I will be having words. Strong words.

What a crock. This book is and so is the Author. Some socialist who wants to worship Obama and make him president indefinitely. This woman had kids sing songs about Obama on Presidents' Day. What a joke. She is a disgrace to the country and the Constitution.
