Product description

In this tender, beautiful letter to his daughters, President Barack Obama has written a moving tribute to thirteen groundbreaking Americans and the ideals that have shaped his nation. From the artistry of Georgia O'Keeffe, to the courage of Jackie Robinson, to the patriotism of George Washington, President Obama sees the traits of these heroes within his own children, and within all children. Breathtaking, evocative illustrations by award-winning artist Loren Long at once capture the personalities and achievements of these great Americans and the innocence and promise of childhood. This beautiful book celebrates the characteristics that unite all Americans, from the nation's founders to generations to come. It is about the potential within each of us to pursue our dreams and forge our own paths.

Review quote

"He has been deliberately liberal in his choice. It is a very beautiful and lyrical book. The roots of the pictures go back to classic American art. It is a very beautifully made book." -- Former Children's Laureate Michael Rosen in conversation with John Wilson BBC Radio 4, Front Row "A moving tribute to 13 influential Americans and how they helped shape the US ... The message applies to us all - anything is possible and we can achieve whatever we set our minds to. It's a lovely book to share with children. Can we read it and enjoy it? Yes we can" -- Natasha Harding The Sun "Of Thee I Sing is a beautiful hardback picture book that celebrates the potential within each of us to pursue our dreams and forge our own paths" Junior News & Mail
