My son gave this book to his nine-year-old daughter. After a few read-throughs she was repeating her favorite quotes verbatim. She truly loved this book, although she is not an avid reader. It will have a positive influence on any child. Whether you lean left, right, or not at all please don't ignore the message this book offers.

This lovely book just happens to have been written by a loving father, Dad and husband that we all know. It's obvious that he loves his daughters very much. This book is meant to show children that they can reach for the stars and be all they can be even when the journey seems difficult and even impossible using examples of famous American heroes. The book reminds them they have everything inside them that they need to succeed. It is meant to inspire and is beautifully written and illustrated. I thank the POTUS for taking the time to share his love of all Americas children with us. You can see him reading parts of it on YouTube with an audience of 60 second graders. Also look for the illustrator talking about the drawings. I will buy one for my NookColor and a couple of hard copies for school.
