Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
K-Gr 3–This bilingual biography follows a day in the life of the president, including full-color photos. Smaller photos are layered on top of larger ones for further clarification. For example, a photograph of the president appears above a map of Hawaii, which is where he was raised. Other images and descriptions include a meeting with his cabinet, a press conference, as well as leisure time spent with his family and Vice President Biden. The last page includes an index and a list of articles, books, and Web sites in both English and Spanish. Unfortunately, only one item on this list is appropriate for this audience. Nevertheless, the book is informative and clear, and children will enjoy the photos of President Obama with his family and dog.–Rebecca Alcalá, San Mateo County Library, CA
