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 ######## identify as an attack helicopter. Just because I'm a kid doesn't mean they should be able to stop me from trying to install rotary blades, 30 mm cannons, and AMG-114 Hellfire missiles on my body. They act like my opinions don't matter just because I'm young. From now on I want you guys to call me “Apache” and respect my right to attack people needlessly. If you can’t accept me you’re a heliphobe and need to check your vehicle privilege. Thank you for being so understanding.

    The teachers are correct, it is not your place to teach/inform/ask other students about something their PARENTS should be guiding them through when they deem it appropriate. You are on school property to learn as are the other students and I doubt when some of them were dropped off their parents expected them to be learning about something they may not be ready for. You might be but you don't get to decide for others. I'm all for the LGBTQ+ rights but not like this.
