From the Publisher:
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 and illustrated by Bryan Collier, both winners 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.

A mother than tells her young son the story of Barack Obama's life--from his childhood in Hawaii, to his educational experiences, to his life as a community organizer in Illinois, to his role as a United States Senator, finally touching on his historic 2008 presidential campaign. Although based on Obama's biography DREAMS FROM MY FATHER, poet Nikki Grimes explains in an author's note that she has used some artistic license to tell her tale. Watercolor and collage illustrations accompany the text.
