Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Tiffany Torbeck
Young readers interested in the new presidential family will be quite pleased with this book, which mostly focuses on the Obama girls. Each page features two or three pictures of the family, ranging from their early days in Chicago, to the campaign trail and now, the White House. Short passages describe each photo and give a little background about the circumstances. Most of the photos are candid shots, which will make children understand that this is a normal family living in extraordinary conditions. The best picture in this collection is President Obama and Sasha in a bumper car at the state fair, and the President's tongue sticking out! This collection is recommended for school and public libraries since most children are very curious about the first family. 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
