This is a generally well-written biography of our current president, and unlike most of the biographies in our library's collection, includes an evaluation of Obama's first 100 days. One rather important event that was left out of this account of Obama's life, however, was the 2004 keynote address at the Democratic National Convention. It is my belief that his speech on that night catapulted him onto the national stage, transforming him from a relative unknown into a major political player. Reference aids and glossy photographs make this an appealing book, both for students wanting to conduct research on our president, as well as for students simply wanting to read about Obama for pleasure.
Recommend for students in grades 4-6.
