(via:suite101.com)-Barack Obama is now a published children’s author. This past Tuesday, the President of the United States saw his book Of Thee I Sing: A Letter to My Daughters published by Random House of New York. It is not his first book of course but it is his first book for kids.
The publication of the book was announced back in September and reports then said that the President had in fact finished writing it some months before winning office. The book was edited by Michelle Frey, an executive editor at Knopf Doubleday Publishing of Random House, the book’s publisher, and illustrated by Loren Long.
It’s a picture book with text by the President and a Random House press release announcing the publication gave an idea of the book’s content “President Obama has written a moving tribute to thirteen groundbreaking Americans and the ideals that have shaped our nation – from the artistry of Georgia O’Keeffe, to the courage of Jackie Robinson, to the patriotism of George Washington.”
