The President of the United States

| No Comments


Seal of the President of the United States Children can meet the Presidential candidates----in books. Whether a child has to read a biography for school, likes to read non fiction, or wants to learn more about the upcoming election, there are several new titles in the children's room for all different reading levels: For readers as young as 3rd grade, the biographies Barack Obama: An American Story by Roberta Edwards and John McCain: An American Life by Spencer Williams provide an introduction to the candidates lives. Readers at a 4th or 5th grade level looking for more details can turn to recent releases including John McCain: Profile of a Leading Republican by Kira Wizner and Barack Obama by Stephen Feinstein, which is part of the "African American heroes" series. For older children grades 6-8, Obama: A Promise of Change by Sarah Thomson, is a biography adapted from the adult title Obama: From Promise to Power. There are also two titles in picture book format that one can share with a child or would work well in a classroom setting. Barack Obama: Son of Promise, Child of Hope, by Nikki Grimes is done in rich illustrations, and is the story of a mother telling her child about the presidential candidate. As she shares the story of Obama, the child draws parallels to his own life. The picture book My Dad, John McCain by Meghan McCain, allows readers to follow McCain's life as if they were looking through the family scrapbook.
