One part of my Personal Day today: Listening to Nikki Grimes reading BARACK OBAMA: SON OF PROMISE, CHILD OF HOPE. Nikki's gentle voice brings to life the story of David, a young boy from the tenements, whose mother recounts for him a story of hope that comes, hope that sustains, and hope that delivers. Based upon President Obama's book, DREAMS FROM MY FATHER creates a nice "ladder" between the two books. Add to these OF THEE I SING and you'd have a nice journey message of hope. Grimes's title is beautifully re-packaged by Simon & Schuster with a CD of Nikki's reading if you've not seen this picture book before. Yes. This was a very nice way to spend part of this day.
