Of Thee I Sing
Of Thee I Sing
President Barack Obama delivers a tender, beautiful letter to his daughters in this powerful picture book that makes the perfect Black History Month read-aloud.

From the artistry of Georgia O'Keeffe, to the courage of Jackie Robinson, to the patriotism of George Washington, President Obama sees the traits of these heroes within his own children, and within all of America's children.
