Publisher Comments:

andlt;bandgt;The #1 andlt;iandgt;New York Timesandlt;/iandgt; bestselling picture-book biography of President Barack Obama is now in paperback.andlt;/bandgt;andlt;BRandgt;andlt;BRandgt;Ever since Barack Obama was young, Hope has lived inside him. From the beaches of Hawaii to the streets of Chicago, from the jungles of Indonesia to the plains of Kenya, he has held on to Hope. Even as a boy, Barack knew he wasnand#8217;t quite like anybody else, but through his journeys he found the ability to listen to Hope and become what he was meant to be: a bridge to bring people together. andlt;BRandgt;andlt;BRandgt;This is the moving story of our 44th President, told by Nikki Grimes and illustrated by Bryan Collier, both winners of the Coretta Scott King Award. Barack Obama has motivated Americans to believe with him, to believe that every one of us has the power to change ourselves and change our world.

Synopsis:

Nikki Grimes's lyrical text and Bryan Collier's distinctive collages tell the inspirational story of President Barack Obama. Raised in Jakarta and Hawaii, Obama's election as President represented a watershed moment in our nation's history. Like JFK and Martin Luther King, Obama is a link in the long chain of people who have fought so that this country fulfills the promises upon which it was founded.

Just as the baton has been passed to Obama from previous leaders, Obama is a role model for the young people who will one day assume the mantle of leadership, and this book will celebrate and inspire them.
