This lovely picture book provides a touching, lyrical overview of the major elements of Barack Obama's life mentioning his mixed race parents, childhood years spent in Indonesia, one time meeting with his father, adolescence spent living with his mother's parents in Hawaii, community organizing in Chicago, political life in Illinois, and campaign for President in 2008. It is a great way for young children to meet the man who is now the President of the United States. Written before Barack was elected President, this book showcases how Barack has become a great human being and leader because he was able to pull together the many disparate pieces of his life into a healthy whole. The vibrant illustrations glow with color and drama. It is very hard to depict real people because probably every reader will have a slightly different view of their accurate appearance; I think that Michelle Obama is far more beautiful and animated than she appears in this book.
You can almost recognize the president!
Not to mention his mother and father and stepfather snd grandparents and sister!
Many compare this book and its cover and simplistic propaganda to communist literature. I assure you, the Russians did better than this with Lenin and Marx.
The book omits the fact that he went to elite schools and screwed around and was the leader of the Choom Gang on a beach in Hawaii.
Now that would give our lazy students some HOPE that they can succeed without studying snd with brains full of THC. Hey man!!!!
I bought this priceless collectors item for fifty cents and hope someday to sell it as a historic book to future generations who find out the truth on Barack.
It is funny. You will smile and enjoy its sheer audacity.
