This was a really great biography of President Obama. The illustrations were nice and were clearly supposed to be President Obama. The text was a nice simplified biography of his life up to the point that he was elected for the first time, and gave specific dates when necessary.

This is a nice little non-fiction read for students a bit more confident with their reading skills but not yet ready to leave the comfortable realm of picture books. Children covering presidential history, or wishing to learn about our current leader, can use this as an addition resource or just for an entertaining and informative read.

I know Obama is a controversial subject, but students need to know about the president. I found this book interesting and I learned a lot about our current president.

I thought this was a great transitional chapter book with great pictures and great information about our President. I recommend this book for 2nd-5th grade students.
Not our typical bedtime story, ok it was more for me than the girls.
