Barack Obama: Out of Many, One


Author: Corey, Shana
ISBN: 9780375863394 Publisher: Random House Children's Books

Reading on your own

This is the story of a skinny little boy with a funny name and how he became part of AmericaÕs history.

In very clear and accessible language, newly independent readers can learn how the lessons and love of ObamaÕs mother and grandparents shaped him; how the places he lived influenced him; and how he turned his sadness from his childhoodÑthe feeling he didnÕt fit in anywhereÑinto a positive, driving force of finding a place in the world and in the history books.

ÒHistory and biography are also successful topics for level-three readers. (Random HouseÕs) Step into Reading has the best offerings for the reading level . . . they are high in kid appeal.ÓÑBooklist
