Publisher's Summary

In this tender, beautiful letter to his daughters, President Barack Obama has written a moving tribute to 13 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, President Obama sees the traits of these heroes within his own children, and within all of America's children.

This book celebrates the characteristics that unite all Americans, from our 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. It is a treasure to cherish with your family forever.

    "Awesome Work"

    The idea is awe-inspiring. And the performance was masterfully done. Through his work, Barack recognises the tiny strengths of his daughters and magnifies them through the achievements of great men and women. He also takes us down the history lane to appreciate and thank those who were true to their creativity. It's a piece that anyone should fall for.

    "A loving tribute"

    I loved this warm and heart-felt children's story from our respected President Obama which weaves historic figures and their accomplishments with a father's awareness of the qualities his children that have within them to inspire and make positive change in the world just as they have inspired him to write this. Although not read by President Obama, the narrator is a terrific T.V actor with a great voice for narration. This short book actually made me misty-eyed. Fully recommended!

    Estate planning lawyer and mom to two boys. My older son liked audiobooks as an infant, and I've listened to a lot since then.

    "Nice short book for kids"

    This was a lovely short book for children with excellent narration. My tween even enjoyed listening to it before bedtime. Highly recommended if it is on sale for a reasonable price!
