Publisher Description

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 together.

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.

Barack Obama Son of Promise, Child of Hope

Once I opened it I could not close it! The words and pictures flowed so gracefully. The narrative approach was intriguing; President Obama’s past, present and future all intertwined. It’s a read all for anyone who has ever endured challenges and understands the power of strength, faith, and hope.
