The youngest person in my house is 22 (me!), so I am sure many would be surprised if they heard that we recently bought a children’s book.
Well, it wasn’t just any children’s book – it was Barack Obama’s “Of Thee I Sing: A Letter to My Daughters“:
I gotta admit, the book is pretty good – and I’m not just saying that because I’m a supporter of him.
All politics aside the story line is good, as is the moral of the story. It essentially introduces various famous Americans (13 of them) with various traits/characteristics that they are known for (and each introduction starts in the form of a “Have I told you…?” question). The core of the story is, of course, that America is made up of a diverse group of people from all sorts of backgrounds who all bring something different to the table and each one is as important as the other.
By the way, a 100% of the profits are being donated to a charity.
Have you read it? What did you think of it?
P.S. Don’t forget to leave me a comment below on your thoughts! As always, I’d love to hear from you.
