Barack Obama: 44th President of the United States, written by Jill C. Wheeler, explores the early life and accomplishments of Barack Obama. Obama is the current president of the United States.
Obama was born Hawaii in 1961 to his parents Barack Obama Sr. and Stanley Ann Dunham. Obama’s parents separated when he was young. After his parents divorced, he decided to live with his grandparents in Hawaii so he could attend Punahou Preparatory School. Obama continued his education at Columbia University, where he graduated in 1983, and then at Harvard Law School, where he graduated in 1991.
Obama began his political career as an Illinois state senator in 1996; he then became a U.S. senator in 2004. He ran for president of the United States in 2008 against John McCain. Obama won the presidential election, making him the first African American president in United States history.
Barack Obama: 44th President of the United States is an inspirational biography of one of the United State’s most influential presidents. This book also contains information regarding the various branches of government, past presidents, lines of succession, and the lifelong benefits of becoming president. ( )

Barack Obama was born in Hawaii. His nickname was Barry and he was such a cute little boy. Obama's father was part of a tribe in Africa. He grew up in California, Kansas, Texas, and Washington. Also as he got older he had went back to Hawaii and then to New York. He finished his education in Politics. He was first a teacher and furthered his education and became a community organizer, legislator, and then president. He has came a very long way. ( )

This biography of our current president is a good, quick overview of Obama's life. The book will help young readers better understand who our president really is and why his story is important in a historical perspective. Photos, glossary, charts, and tables make this a great book to encorporate into a social studies curriculum.

This book gave lots of information about the government. It not only gave the President's life story, it also educated the reader on the office of the President. Very educational. ( )

Another great biography; this is one is about the 44th President of the United States, Barack Obama. This one was more interesting to me, more than likely because Barack Obama is our current president. For this reason, I think it would be more interesting to student's as well. Provides a glimpse into his early life, family, personal life and political achievements. I was unaware that Obama went to Harvard and was also a teacher for a good few years. Interesting information- Again, good for higher level elementary students learning about biographies, history & presidents! ( )
