Barack Obama has inspired millions of people around the world--and an unwavering chorus of those admirers are children. This delightfully charming collection includes more than two hundred letters that kids have written to President Obama. Some of these messages are humorous, some are heartwarming, all of them are sincere--making this volume the perfect gift for any occasion.

The children ask questions: "Why did you want to be president?" "Do you think you could pass a law making chocolate a vegetable in our country?" They give suggestions: "I think you should fix things in the world to be more fair." They offer advice: "You should bring a yo-yo to the White House." They share hopes: "I want you to care about schools. I am in kindergarten." They even volunteer expertise: "I will help you learn to bowl because you don't know how to bowl."

Whether discussing such weighty issues as the "econimical" crisis, the environment, and alternative energy or simply giving shout-outs to First Daughters Sasha and Malia, these kid correspondents express, as only children can, pure optimism, avid curiosity, and unadulterated elation about this historic moment. Complete with original illustrations by the letter writers themselves, and wonderful reproductions of some of the kids' handwritten messages, this marvelous book--a true message of hope for our time--is a keepsake for the whole family to enjoy.
