OF THEE I SING: A LET­TER TO MY DAUGH­TERS

BY BARACK OBAMA (PUFFIN) R129*

DRUM - - Chill Out -

The book was orig­i­nally re­leased in 2010 and re-re­leased ear­lier this year. The whole world watched for­mer pres­i­dent Barack Obama’s two daugh­ters grow up. Now they’re all grown up but they’ll al­ways be his lit­tle girls, the ones he imag­ined when he wrote the book.

The book is a trib­ute to 13 ground-break­ing Amer­i­cans and the ideals that have shaped the Amer­i­can na­tion. From artist Ge­or­gia O’Keeffe to base­ball player Jackie Robin­son – Barack sees the traits of these heroes within his own chil­dren, and within all of Amer­ica’s kids.

It’s about the po­ten­tial within each of us to pur­sue our dreams and forge our own paths.
