Did you know that an Obama children’s book, Of Thee I Sing: A Letter to My Daughters is set to hit stores soon? So that is what he has been doing the past year! I kid. Obama is already an internationally acclaimed author, so for him to release a children’s book surely doesn’t surprise me. Read more and see photos here!

Will you buy an Obama children’s book? Of Thee I Sing: A Letter to My Daughters is set to hit store shelves on November 16th, 2010. Perfect timing considering that is just two weeks after the midterm elections!

So what do we know about the forthcoming book? Well we do know that this is primarily a picture book that was illustrated by the great Loren Long. Now while you may be thinking that Obama has had too much time on his hands to write books while working in the White House, you thought wrong. Obama actually wrote this book before he was inaugurated in 2009.

Chip Gibson, the president and publisher of Random House, who is publishing Obama’s book, released the following statement saying “It is an honor to publish this extraordinary book, which is an inspiring marriage of words and images, history and story” and that the book “celebrates the characteristics that unite all Americans — the potential to pursue our dreams and forge our own paths.”

While we are hearing that only 500,000 copies will be available for purchase, all the sales will go to a fund to those children of soldiers whose parent (s) was killed or injured in the war.

That’s fabulous! What do you think? Will you pick up Obama’s children book, Of Thee I Sing: A Letter to My Daughters when it hits the stores?

    I will buy one for each of my seven grandchildren! He’s a true role model family man. I feel sorry for those who have bought into Mrs. Palin’s mama grizzly bit. Propaganda. And I speak for many Alaskans who know her.
