    • Great Book!
      Verified Purchase

      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.
