TIME for Kids Presents President Obama: A Day in the Life of America’s Leader

Guess who: He was born in Honolulu, Hawaii, on August 4, 1961. He’s the 44th president of the United States of America and the first African American president to take office so far. And he may be the most important man in America, perhaps even in the entire world.

He’s President Barack Obama.

What’s it like to be president, to be responsible for the decisions of an entire country? What’s a typical day like for the busiest man in the free world? Find out with TIME for Kids: President Obama: A Day in the Life of America’s Leader.

This beautifully depicted book starts with a brief overview of the election process and goes on to describe the campaign trail and even gives readers a glimpse into the White House itself. It also gives some fun facts about President Obama before he was the “top dog”—for example, growing up, he had a pet ape named Tata.

TIME for Kids: President Obama shows children what a typical day in the life of the President is like with:

· Good Morning, Mr. President

· Busy Day in DC

· Busy Days on the Road

· Good Night, Mr. President

In addition, fun facts are scattered throughout the book, and the book even gives us a glimpse at what President Obama’s appointment book looks like. And with actual pictures of the President, his family, and his team, this book isn’t only educational—it’s beautiful.

President Obama: A Day in the Life of America’s Leader will make the perfect holiday gift for kids between the ages of 6 and 13 years old and is a great aid in helping parents spark up a conversation about politics with their children. This book will be available in stores on October 6, 2009.
