Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This is a journey that began in many places.

It began in Kansas, home of Baracks mother.

It began in Africa, home of Baracks father.

It began in Hawaii one moonlit night, the night that Barack was born.

Sometimes it was a lonely journey.

Sometimes it was an enchanted journey.

But throughout this most unusual ride, this boy often wondered:

Who am I?

Where do I belong?

Jonah Winter and AG Ford re-create the extraordinary story behind the rise of Americas first African-American president, Barack Obama, in this stunning picture book.

About the Author

Jonah Winter is a poet and the award-winning author of many picture books for children, including Muhammad Ali, illustrated by François Roca; Roberto Clemente, illustrated by Raúl Colón; Frida, illustrated by Ana Juan; and Dizzy, illustrated by Sean Qualls, which was praised by School Library Journal: Winter's "lively writing pops with energy and begs to be read aloud." It was seeing and hearing Barack Obama at a historic rally in Birmingham, Alabama, that inspired Winter to write this loving tribute.

AG Ford is the illustrator of the New York Times bestselling Barack by Jonah Winter and Michelle and First Family by Deborah Hopkinson. He is the recipient of an NAACP Image Award. AG lives in Dallas, Texas.
