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.

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. Many of us had to delay having a family or were made to feel like we were not doing the right thing (to our employers) if we quit our jobs or took time off to care for the kids. I love the fact that the book says that Michelle's first priority is her kids.
In short, how could anyone not have a great deal of fun with this book and a box of crayons or colored pencils?
