Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Tiffany Torbeck
Due to the historic nature of our current president, many children are very curious about him. The pictures and information in this book will address some of that curiosity. While many pictures are included of the President's early years as senator and his presidential campaign, readers will be more interested in the few pages that show pictures of the President as a child. Young readers will be given a small look at his childhood as the book mentions him being in Indonesia and Hawaii. The pictures during the President's first year are well chosen, as they show a vibrant and happy man, despite the difficult times the country has been having. Children will appreciate seeing a man that is at ease in his job and with his family. Public and school libraries will be interested in this eye-candy type book for their readers. Reviewer: Tiffany Torbeck
School Library Journal
Gr 2–4—Focusing on the human-interest side of President Obama, his family, and his inauguration, these books are essentially photo-essays mostly featuring the campaign and early days in the White House. As a group, it is obvious that the photos were selected from the same cache of days and events, but the sharp focus, saturated color, and handsome family make for engaging material. Short, one- or two-sentence captions describe the subjects, while the bold, full-spread images speak for themselves. Except for the few photos featuring Obama's early life, all are in color and of high quality.—Janet S. Thompson, Chicago Public Library
