Barack Obama: Son of Promise, Child of Hope :: Book Review

Barack Obama: Son of Promise, Child of Hope by Nikki Grimes is a beautifully illustrated picture book about Barack Obama’s life.

Ever since he was a young boy, hope lived inside Barack Obama. Learn about the many places he lived as a child – from the beaches of Hawaii to the streets of Chicago, from the jungles of Indonesia to the plains of Kenya – and how he held on to hope through it all.

Even as a child, Barack knew he wasn’t quite like anyone else. Through his many journeys, he found the ability to listen to hope, follow his dreams and become what he was meant to be: a bridge to bring people of all races, religions and cultural background together in peace and freedom.


This is the moving story of an exceptional man who has motivated not only Americans, but people all over the world to believe with him that ever one of us has the power to change ourselves and change the world.


Check out this inspiring story – a great read no matter your age or reading level!

    How To Upload a Photo:Yay! You have read this far, now its time to learn things. In this post, I will be teaching you how to upload a photo! :DDesktop: Okay, there are two ways to do this. You can upload from your albums, OR, you can upload from your profile picture.                   To upload from your albums, go to your profile and click on "my albums." Now, the system will tell you that you MUST upload a photo to an album. You have two options, you can create a new album, or you can upload to a previously made album. After you choose one of the two options, you need to click on the "choose file" button. You need to choose a file. But, before you upload, make sure your picture is appropriate and follows all of the KW rules! I recommend that you read the rules before uploading. Then after your upload, your photo will be taken to moderation where it will be approved or rejected.                      To upload from your profile picture, you just click a button that says upload. Then its really just the same thing.Mobile: Uploading for mobile is just about the sane thing except you need to press the three people in the right corner and then scroll down to my albums.Remember, when you upload a photo, if follows all of the rules. Do NOT upload a photo of a celebrity and say it is you! For ages 12 and under, sorry, but you may not upload pictures of yourself.
