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

Barack Obama: Son of Promise, Child of Hope

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!

However, we shouldn't be the world's police.

Look at history, every great Empire fell...that's why there isn't a sole Empire governing the entire known world. It wont happen in our lifetimes, but it always happens to the strongest power currently in the world. That's what happened to The Roman Empire, The Persian Empire, The Mongolian Empire, The British Empire, The Spanish Empire, The Russian Empire, Greece, Egypt, and 50 some odd Chinese dynasties. Point being, we're not the first to be the world's superpower...why is our fate different?
