Overview

On November 5th, 2008, journalists Bruce Kluger and David Tabatsky had a simple idea: to recapture the exhilarating spirit of the 2008 election from the perspective of our nation's children.

They emailed a handful of friends. Those friends forwarded the email to their friends and relatives. In the end, the same infectious enthusiasm that fueled the Obama campaign itself produced the 200 letters and drawings collected here.

From every region of the country, from ages four to 18, these kids talk about their hopes, fears, and dreams, and their unchecked excitement about the historic election that took place during their young lives.

Kluger and Tabatsky also collaborated with the young contributors to create the vibrant visuals that accompany their remarkable letters.

Meet the Author

Bruce Kluger and David Tabatsky first met when their children were in elementary school together. Dear President Obama is their latest in a series of collaborations that have included articles for Parenting magazine and Sesame Street Workshop, as well as work on Marlo Thomas' bestselling book, The Right Words at the Right Time, Vol. 2: Your Turn!.

As creator and host of Nick News, Nickelodeon's long-children's series, Linda Ellerbee was the perfect choice to write the foreword to Dear President Obama. "Reading these letters," she says, "I consider what wonders we may see if the kids of today can hang onto this passion, this hope, this wanting to do the right thing; if they can come together to make change for the good, and never, ever stop caring about their country, Pay attention to their letters. They are the future speaking to us."
