Ever since Barack Obama was young, Hope has lived inside him. From the beaches of Hawaii to the streets of Chicago, from the jungles of Indonesia to the plains of Kenya, he has held on to Hope. Even as a boy, Barack knew he wasn't quite like anybody else, but through his journeys he found the ability to listen to Hope and become what he was meant to be: a bridge to bring people together.This is the moving story of an exceptional man, as told by Nikki Grimes, winner of the Coretta Scott King Award. Barack Obama has motivated Americans to believe with him, to believe that every one of us has the power to change ourselves and change our world.More

Good story marred by lackluster narration
I might. I'm not opposed to her as an author but I didn't like her narration.
I bought it thinking it would be a short biography similar to the "Who Was X?" series. Unfortunately, it had less content and weaker narration. We didn't seem to learn much from it, or find it very enjoyable.
She wasn't a smooth or engaging narrator. My son and I had a hard time paying attention, which is surprising since Obama's life is such an interesting story.
Sure -- I would enjoy seeing a film about Obama's life.
