Children’s book by Obama to be released in November
America’s author-in-chief is back.
President Obama has written a children’s book titled “Of Thee I Sing: A Letter to My Daughters,” according to a news release from Random House.
A 500,000-copy first edition is scheduled to be released November 16.
The illustrated book, according to Random House, is “a moving tribute to thirteen 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…”
The manuscript was completed before Obama took office in 2009, the news release stated.
Proceeds from the book, which has a suggested retail price of $17.99, will be donated to a scholarship fund for children of fallen and disabled soldiers.
