Reading level: Ages 4-8

Hardcover: 48 pages

Publisher: Simon & Schuster Children’s Publishing (August 26, 2008)

Barack Obama: Son of Promise, Child of Hope is an endearing book about hope, courage and one man’s amazing journey though life. The story is written by Nikki Grimes, and is told from the standpoint of a mother talking to her son. She tells him the story of a man named Barack Obama, who was also known as Barry during his childhood. While the words “extravagantly emotional” enter my mind, I believe that this will be a very sentimental and inspirational book for many. No matter what the outcome is for the 2008 presidential election, Barack Obama has found his way into history, and I think this book definitely serves it purpose.
