This is an overview of the road to Presidency Barack Obama took in getting to the White House. It's got lots of pictures of him and folks related to him in one way or another, the language is simple and explanatory, and it does a good job of educating kids on who he is and how he got the Presidency. I even learned a few things! Candidates and former presidents are presented well, without much in the way of slander or opinion on them- just simple facts. ( )

This book offers an overview to the life of President Obama, to his policies etc. It has about 80 pages and gives a basic knowledge to its reader. Pictures are chosen carefully and are pretty emotional. Also other president candidates are presented superficially such as McCain and Bush. With colours different point of views are explained and made clear to the reader. A short and nice book, maybe for teenager to get into touch with politics. ( )

This book describes the historical journey of Barack Obama from childhood to becoming the first African American president of the United States. ( )

This is one of the best quality, most compelling books about Barack Obama's historic 2008 Presidential election that I have seen. The text is simple yet accurate; the photos are crisp, bright, and interesting. Although this book was written for "young readers," I truly believe that readers of any age will enjoy it. This book can be flipped through and returned to again and again as a reference, or read cover to cover. The slight Democratic slant ("bias") won't matter much to young readers, and it is consistent with the slant of the New York Times, which published this book. Students will enjoy reading fun facts and sound bites about their president (such as on page 68, for example). I think this book belongs on the shelf of any elementary or middle school library. ( )
