Overview

Barack Obama has inspired millions of people around the world–and an unwavering chorus of those admirers are children. This delightfully charming collection includes more than two hundred letters that kids have written to President Obama. Some of these messages are humorous, some are heartwarming, all of them are sincere–making this volume the perfect gift for any occasion.

The children ask questions: “Why did you want to be president?” “Do you think you could pass a law making chocolate a vegetable in our country?” They give suggestions: “I think you should fix things in the world to be more fair.” They offer advice: “You should bring a yo-yo to the White House.” They share hopes: “I want you to care about schools. I am in kindergarten.” They even volunteer expertise: “I will help you learn to bowl because you don’t know how to bowl.”

Whether discussing such weighty issues as the “econimical” crisis, the environment, and alternative energy or simply giving shout-outs to First Daughters Sasha and Malia, these kid correspondents express, as only children can, pure optimism, avid curiosity, and unadulterated elation about this historic moment. Complete with original illustrations by the letter writers themselves, and wonderful reproductions of some of the kids’ handwritten messages, this marvelous book–a true message of hope for our time–is a keepsake for the whole family to enjoy.

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Mary Quattlebaum
Adler's father and son bring us a funny, touching, insightful collection of 200 letters from kids to President Obama. These letters come from all over the United States and offer hope, advice and good wishes. Some are even reproduced in the original handwriting, quirky punctuation and spelling. Sydney, six, says "Please remember to be peaceful" and Katelynn, nine, suggests the Obama's get a soccer-playing Border Collie like hers. Olga, twelve, has pressing concerns. She praises the President for giving up smoking and asks him to "fix the immigration problem," which forces her and her mother to live in different countries. Christian, ten, sums up the mood of many: "Did you know my mom cried when you won? I wrote my name on my head and went to bed so you would have good luck…. This is one of the biggest elections ever. I think that this is history." Reviewer: Mary Quattlebaum

This book is so sweet and funny. No matter your political party, you'll love hearing about the U.S.A and the president from a kids point of view.

"...an unwavering chorus" of Obama's supporters are "children". No doubt. Children of all ages. Unintentional liberal humor from the golden days of the Obama personality cult, 2009. Softball questions from soon-to-be disillusioned Americans. Rated R for retro.

THIS BOOK IS CLEARLY WRITTEN BY LIBERAL MONKEYS. NO CHILD IN THEIR RIGHT MIND WOULD EVER WRITE A LETTER TO THIS FAILURE. HE HAS BEEN IN OFFICE FOR ONLY LIKE A HUNDRED DAYS. WEAK STUFF RIGHT THERE DON'T YA KNOW. THESE SO CALLED CHILDREN SHOULD BE FORCED TO READ LIBERTY AND TYRANNY OR THE 5000 YEAR LEAP. OR HOW ABOUT AN OLD FASHIONED BIBLE. CHRISTIAN BIBLE. NONE OF THE LDS CRAP.
