Barack Obama: Son of Promise, Child of Hope
Barack Obama: Son of Promise, Child of Hope by Nikki Grimes
The #1 New York Times bestselling picture-book biography of President Barack Obama is now in paperback.
Ever since Barack Obama was young, Hope has lived inside him. From the beaches
of Hawaii to the streets of Chicago, from the jungles of Indonesia to the
plains of Kenya, he has held on to Hope. Even as a boy, Barack knew he wasn’t
quite like anybody else, but through his journeys he found the ability to
listen to Hope and become what he was meant to be: a bridge to bring people
This is the moving story of our 44th President, told by Nikki Grimes and illustrated by Bryan Collier, both winners of the Coretta Scott King Award. Barack Obama has motivated Americans to believe with him, to believe that every one of us has the power to change ourselves and change our world.
