of humble background is encouraged by the adults around him to believe that he is capable of doing anything he wants to do Sound familiar It s called the American Dream, and the boy is Barack Obama, a biracial child who has gone on to change the course of history This picture book biography serves to educate children not only about Obama s journey thus far, but also to connect his circumstances to
