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!

    I used to read YouTube comments a lot and one day a comment said: do not stop while reading this or bad things will happen to you. One day a girl died .......(I think it went like that) and if you don't repost this comment five/ten times(I saw a few of these in my life) on other sites, one night when you least expect it, she will rise from her grave and kill you with her dagger. I didn't do it and it freaked me out.

    Me and my sisters were getting groceries and when no one was looking the trunk hit my little sister in the back of her head. The trunk wouldn't stay up and my sister tried to climb in the trunk to reach for something. Our car was a used Yukon and the trunk was weak. Blood was EVERYWHERE! We took her to the ER and she was ok.
