Obama Round-Up

Inauguration Day is fast approaching -- are you ready for it? Here at the store, we'll be playing the radio broadcast as it happens -- and here's a round-up for all ages to help you ring in the new presidency.

Pairing powerful sketches and drawings by award-winner Kadir Nelson with some of Barack Obama's most inspiring words, this book is sure to put you in the mood for change. Change Has Come is accessible to all ages, and it's our favorite Barack book here at the store!

For readers in the middle school range and older, Garen Thomas's biography Yes We Can is an informative hit. Obama's life becomes even more compelling with this detailed treatment.

Barack Obama: Son of Promise, Child of Hope by children's poet Nikki Grimes renders the soon-to-be-President's life in picturebook form. Accompanied by Bryan Collier's sweeping illustrations, this title is great for the 3-5 crowd.

Relive Election Day with these fabulous Obama Paper Dolls by Tom Tierney! Dress the 44th President and his family for every government occasion, because change has come--to the First Family's wardrobe!

For those who've just mastered reading on their own, Barack Obama: United States President by Roberta Edwards is full of photographs and info about to prep you for Inauguration Day. From his beginnings to his new position, this book's got it all for the newly independent reader.

Start off your year right with this Presidential calendar, pairing Obama's own words with vibrant photos. Those first 100 days of a new presidency are the most important--and with this great calendar you can keep track of them all. Remember, calendars are half off here at the store!

Here's an indestructible book for the youngest readers--Barack Obama 101: My Very First Presidential Board Book by Brad Epstein. With appealing photos and simple text, this book is great for readers 3 and under.

Barack by Jonah Winter captures Obama's history wonderfully, enhanced by A.G. Ford's compelling illustrations. Embracing the prospect of hope that Obama's campaign promoted, this picturebook is a great choice for readers 3-5.
