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!

He doesn't give a sh*t for women.  We can both agree that women should not have the right to kill their children when they're toddlers, so when is the right of the mother to determine the life of the child taken away?  women should have a right to choose an abortion up until the term in its pregnancy when it can actually sense itself which is about 6 months old, and guess what you cant actually abort a baby after 6 months in clinics so its not a big deal ADVERTISEMENT If Hillary wins, itll be a big deal. She can/will legalize it to be whenever the mother chooses. No. That's not fair. A baby didn't choose to come into this world, you (the parent) put them in it.  You can't be like "oh, I don't think I'll be a good parent even though it's 7 months into my pregnancy." And think abortion is a rational decision.
