Many of you have been asking for a book on our new president, Barack Obama. A new book just arrived today, and more will be arriving soon. The book we received today is called Barack Obama Son of Promise, Child of Hope by Nikki Grimes and illustrated by Bryan Collier.
From the cover: “Ever since Barack Obama was young, Hope has lived inside him. From the beaches of Hawaii to the streets of Chicago, from the jungles of Indonesia to the plains of Kenya, he has held on to Hope. Even as a boy, Barack knew he wasn’t quite like anybody else, but through his journeys he found the ability to listen to Hope and become what he was meant to be: a bridge to bring people together. ”
