1 Stars Out Of 5
This book is very misleading to children.
April 26, 2012
One of my students at my school gave me this book out of the media center and said "I didn't know President Obama was a slave" If you ever get a chance to view this book President Obama picture is TOTALLY different from the other Presidents. I have provided some example pictures below. The other presidents are in nice suits and looking very professional and presidential. The author ALICE PROVENSEN made President Obama in a white cotton shirt with no tie and some brown khaki pants and some shoes that look like some potato bags. It appears that he is sitting on the side of a porch. The first lady and his children are dressed in rags and they are standing in front of a garden with the white house to there backs. They look like they are on a slave plantation. This book points out ALL the negative about the US presidents. If this is a children book it needs to be positive not negative. This book has been pulled from our collection. We are not up lifting camouflaged negativity of author personal views.
