Obama is Doing it Now

First, Palin was reaching out to the kids.  Now, President Barack Obama is speaking to the children…through his new book.  Supposedly completed prior to his election, “Of Thee I Sing” is a 31-page tribute to 13 historical Americans including scientists, baseball greats and painters.

Cover illustration for "of Thee I Sing."The book is supposed to emphasize characteristics uniting all Americans, which is a good message.  No cookies, though…not even an entertaining video.  The children’s book seems to leave politics out, which is great.  What I find odd about the book is its subtitle, “A Letter to My Daughters.”  When the book was published, that bit should have been scrapped for something making the book demographic less exclusive.  The cover art for the book shows his daughters and their dog.

Obama will not be making money from the book, as the article linked to above claims:

Proceeds of the book will be donated to a scholarship fund for the children of soldiers who have been killed or disabled in service.
