Acclaimed poet and award-winning children's author Jonah Winter - inspired by a political rally he attended during the historic 2008 presidential campaign - tells the moving story of Barack Obama. Beginning in Africa and Kansas, this enlightening biography describes Obama's life as an ongoing journey, from his birth in Hawaii to his election as president. Obama emerges as someone who, even from an early age, wondered where he belonged and who he might become.

    " Of course, we had to let Grace (and Papa) read this book after we happened upon it. We were delighted that Grace gravitated towards this book on her own. A good story about complicated childhood situations helping to mold the person for the best! "

    " I love the pictures in this book, the book says it is for 6-10 year olds but the text is kind of hard for that age group to read themselves but they would understand most of it if read to them. The book talks about racism and other topics they may not know. "

    " One of the better Obama picture books I've read. It's a bit wordy, but does a good job of talking about Obama's diverse family and his search for his identity. "

    " This was in our high school library, but it is clearly an elementary book. However, it was a well done, easy-to-read account of Barack Obama's climb to presidency. The pictures were beautifully painted and informed beyond just what the text contained. "
