In this tender, beautiful letter to his daughters, President Barack Obama has written a moving tribute to thirteen groundbreaking Americans and the ideals that have shaped our nation. From the artistry of Georgia O'Keeffe, to the courage of Jackie Robinson, to the patriotism of George Washington, President Obama sees the traits of these heroes within his own children, and within all of Americaís children.

Breathtaking, evocative illustrations by award-winning artist Loren Long at once capture the personalities and achievements of these great Americans and the innocence and promise of childhood.

This beautiful book celebrates the characteristics that unite all Americans, from our nationís founders to generations to come. It is about the potential within each of us to pursue our dreams and forge our own paths. It is a treasure to cherish with your family forever.

Barack Obama is the forty-fourth president of the United States. Born in Hawaii to a mother from Kansas and a father from Kenya, he himself is now the father of two daughters, Malia and Sasha. It was spending time with them that inspired him to write Of Thee I Sing.

  • Great Book!

    I originally bought this book for myself, not realizing it was a children's book, so I sent it to my grand-daughter. This is for an older child, I'd say around 7 yrs and up. What a beautiful way to teach your child values and responsibility but also to be proud to be an American. Barak has also managed to write this book in a way so that when you read it to your child that he or she will also feel loved just for who they are right at this very moment. The book itself is also beautiful and should become a keepsake since it was written by the first African American president in the history of the U.S.
