Barack Obama Pens a Children’s Book

Barack Obama Of Thee I Sing

Of Thee I Sing, President Obama’s new children’s book

For Barack Obama’s new children’s book, the President puts politics aside and focuses instead on the people who have made our country great.

Written before he took office in January of 2009, Of Thee I Sing: A Letter to My Daughters is a picture book billed as a tribute to 13 “groundbreaking Americans and the ideals that have shaped [the] nation.”

Obama’s inspiring Americans include George Washington, Georgia O’Keeffe and Jackie Robinson, among others.

A mere 40 pages in length, the book is illustrated by Loren Long and, according to Chip Gibson, president and publisher of Random House Children’s Books , promises to be “an inspiring marriage of words and images, history and story.”

As with President Obama’s previous literary efforts, this one is sure to be a best-seller. With a first print run of half-a-million copies, all author proceeds will be donated to “a scholarship fund for the children of fallen and disabled soldiers.”

Of Thee I Sing: A Letter to My Daughters will be available November 16.  Will you buy it?
