Of Thee I Sing: A Letter to My Daughters By Barack Obama, Illustrated by Loren Long (2010) – Hardcover
Of Thee I Sing is a tender love letter from a father to his daughters and a powerful tribute to thirteen diverse Americans that changed the world. From the innovative sounds of Billie Holiday to the leader and soul healer Sitting Bull, President Barack Obama discovers the traits of these legendary figures in his own daughters and gives them the inspiration they need to forge their own paths.
Loren Long’s illustrations throughout the book are awe inspiring. I would have liked to see something as equally powerful on the cover art.
Take-away message : Teaches children that they all have potential to change the future.
