Bob Neer. Illustrated by Joe Lee.
Barack Obama For Beginners is the most concise
and reliable short biography available on the
44th President of the United States — from his
childhood in Hawaii and Indonesia, education
at Columbia and Harvard, work as a community
organizer, writer, teacher, lawyer, and politician
in Illinois, to his historic campaign for President.
Barack Obama For Beginners keeps the focus on
the man and his record — accomplishments and
missteps, praise and criticism — to allow readers
to gain a balanced understanding of President
Obama as they follow his rise to the White House.
Entertaining illustrations enliven the reading
experience and highlight important details.
