This is a new entry in a series that I highly recommend. Each title provides beginning chapter book readers with a readable and detailed story of a person’s life, in this case Barack Obama. There are illustrations, timelines, questions to think about, a quiz and more to extend and enhance the reader’s experience.
Readers watch as Barack begins his life in Hawaii and goes on to live in many places including Indonesia, gets an education, finds love and makes his way in law and political life. They learn about his white mom and his Kenyan dad and watch as he becomes the country’s first Black president. All of this is done in a book that engages the reader.
Many thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for this title in exchange for an honest review. I recommend all of the books in this series; they will help children to understand history and to dream of all they can do in the world.
