"The writing is clear and well researched and the information is quite accessible to most readers. This would be a very good resource for upper elementary and older readers in need of high interest material."

TriState Young Adult Book Review Committee, September 2009

". . . this straightforward biography of our new president is a cut above most nonfiction series books . . . Both for reports and casual reading, this will be welcome by those a little too young to read Obama’s two memoirs."

BayViews, August 2009

"This is an excellent resource book . . . This book should be read by anyone who wonders who is this president, where does he stand, and what is in his past and present."

Children's Literature

". . . a very interesting approach . . . the combination of the detailed illustrations and text provided so much fascinating information about sea voyages . . ."
