Review

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.

Every year we lose more people to AIDS. It hasn't disappeared and it's not going away anytime soon. I urge you to seek out and support your local AIDS Organizations. Encourage everyone you know to practice safe sex and to get tested once a year. Even if you don't think you are at risk, get tested. I didn't think I was at risk either, and I almost died before I was diagnosed.
