This book is a biography of Michelle Obama, the first lady of America and wife of President Obama. This book tells of Michelle's early life as well as her career, being a mother, and being the first lady of the United States. I learned a lot about Michelle Obama from this book. In particular when she was young, I had no idea that she was from a working class family or that she was such a gifted student. Michelle skipped second grade and in sixth grade she went to one of the best schools in Chicago. My favorite part of this biography though was the part when she stood by her husband when he ran for President. The author says that, "Michelle spoke of how each child in America deserved a better chance to excel". I loved that quote, I could not agree more. ( )

A gentle, exposition of Michelle Obama's journey from humble beginnings in Chicago to inauguration day. Thought not earth shattering, this book IS encouraging. I'm envisioning 4th and 5th grade girls becoming starry eyed as they learn of the merits of grit though the true story of a contemporary leader. ( )

I love the first lady of the United States of America. She is very educated and a strong African American woman. Women as myself looks up to her because she is a great role model. I also love reading biographies about Michelle along with her husband the President. ( )

I love Michelle Obama!! She is a very educated and strong woman. She graduated from Harvard, a very prestigious college with a law degree. Education is a huge factor in my life. I always tell my babies that it doesn't matter what you go to college for, as long as you go. I respect Michelle tremendously for all that she has accomplished and I respect her even more so for doing her own thing and standing individually beside Barack. Women are strong creatures and she proves to us that women of all color can accomplish anything that they set their minds to. ( )

This book is for inspiring children to dream big. It tells the story of how Michelle Robinson chased her dreams through Harvard Law School in oder to better serve her community. While working for a law firm, she met another Harvard student, Barack Obama, who won her heart and began a family with her. Realizing her husband was a true leader, Michelle's support brought their family to the White House to share their dreams with America as the First Family. A copy of Michelle should be in ever elementary school library. ( )
