Obama: The Historic Journey: Young Reader's Edition
by The New York Times (Author), Jill Abramson (Author), Bill Keller (Author)
Reading level: Ages 9-12

Obama: The Historic Journey: Young Reader's Edition brings readers the extraordinary story of Barack Obama’s voyage from childhood through his inauguration as the 44th president of the United States of America. His election marked an unprecedented step forward in American history, shattering racial barriers and forever altering the political landscape. No other news source has better captured his story than The New York Times, America’s premier newspaper and the winner of 96 Pulitzer Prizes for journalism. With an astounding array of visual imagery, along with in-depth reporting that has been specially adapted for young readers, this beautifully produced volume gives children a comprehensive portrait of the man whose inspiring message has touched people the world over. Children will be fascinated by the “skinny kid with the funny name” who rose to become America’s first African-American president.
We have truly enjoyed this great book! The images helped my little ones to comprehend the story of our President. The images were also great in helping to keep the attention of my little ones. I have enjoyed this book at home as well as in my classroom! As a teacher, I appreciate that this book was written with vocabulary that little ones can understand! We highly recommend this great resource to anyone interested in learning more about our current President of the United States!
Thanks so much to Mother Talk for this great read!
