Did you know that Barack Obama lived in Hawaii when he was a little boy? Now he is the 44th President of the United States.
PreS-Gr 2—Basic facts are given in this beginning biography. Readers meet Barack Obama as a young boy living in Hawaii and learn about his move to Indonesia, his education, and his journey to becoming the first African-American President of the United States. Full-page photographs with insets of maps are paired with spare, easy-to-read text. Words such as "Senator," "President," and "White House" are defined. Not a first purchase, but a useful introduction.—Nancy Baumann, Indian Paintbrush Elementary, Laramie, WY
