Including his inauguration as the 44th president of the United States, this beautifully designed book tells the extraordinary story of Barack Obama's life and rise to power in both words and photographs.
The young readers hardcover edition is specifically written and designed to appeal to and inspire the 8-12 age group, with age-appropriate text and a different selection of photographs and illustrations. It is in a slightly smaller format (9" x 10 7/8") and includes 96 pages, with 200 full-color photographs.
What a wonderful resource this is! This book chronicles the life of Barack Obama from his childhood, on his incredible rise to power, his election and his inauguration as President of The United States. It's full of gorgeous pictures to bring it all to life. Regardless of where you stand politically, this is a beautiful addition to your children's library to help them get to know our new President. I was amazed at the beautiful photography, with some pictures from the inauguration that will help to experience the excitement of the day. This was the children's edition, but I found it fascinating just to look at the pictures. While it's an educational book, it isn't like a textbook at all. This is definitely a book to hand down to your children! I can't say enough good things about this book.
