Publisher's Description

The #1 New York Times bestselling picture-book biography of President Barack Obama is now in paperback.

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 wasn’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.

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.

    This review was written for Barack Obama: Son of Promise, Child of Hope.
    I am so very upset about seeing this book available at this retailer. They are usually very particular about what they sell, that it upholds their values. This book does not. As someone else pointed out, it makes Obama sound as if he was a divine soul. As a follower of Christ I am against that portrayal. Beyond the overtone of extreme love and awe for our president, it does not align with his own autobiographies! He discusses having several sexual relationships and frequent drug use in his own books (starting at least in high school). That is just the tip of things I found distasteful. I would not have my children read this and idolize him- only to find out later what kind of man he really is. This is utter trash and you'd be better off just reading his own autos to get the good and bad of a human being. NOT a being of worship. To those who reviewed saying they were grateful for the info I feel sorry and even more-so with them sharing it with young impressionable children. You should have double checked your info source. Read his AUTO!!!

    This review was written for Barack Obama: Son of Promise, Child of Hope.
    I was floored by the Messiah-like portrayal and iconographic art stylings used to describe and show Obama in this book. The portrayals, descriptions, and even the story of his life was heavy with overt references to some sort of divine birth, etc. and I found it completely disturbing as a Christian. The only indoctrination I want my children exposed to is that that solely comes from the Bible itself, not near-sacrilegious depictions of a political figure.

    This a very good book on child Obama. I'm very fortunate to have such information and I hope my grandson will enjoy as much as I.
