Just two days after it was announced, President Barack Obama’s book “Of Thee I Sing: A Letter To My Daughters” has already become a hit in the American book-buying scene. The children’s book, which is a tribute to 13 American trail-blazers, was included in the top 25 on BarnesAndNoble.com and Amazon.com as of early Wednesday morning. The astonishing part? The book isn’t even scheduled to hit the shelves until November 16th!
Chip Gibson, the president and publisher for Random House children, spoke about the book in a statement released on Monday stating, “It is an honor to publish this extraordinary book, which is an inspiring marriage of words and images, history and story. Of Thee I Sing: A Letter to My Daughters’ celebrates the characteristics that unite all Americans — the potential to pursue our dreams and forge our own paths.”
Sounds like quite the book to me!
