What is your personal opinion or review of the book
Barrack Obama authored this book ‘of Thee I Sing: A Letter To My Daughters’ with beautiful illustrations by Loren Long. The narratives of this book are simple questions post to his daughters, simple daily questions grounding his love and aspiration for his daughters, as well as for children of America (United States) of what, who and why they are part of America. The questions he asked were answered with examples of well-known American forefathers who helped made America what it is now. Each with unique gifts and contributions “to work and build upon all that is good in our nation”. But the most important feature of this book is the Braille writings being incorporated in the book. Innovatively giving a normal able-sight reader to experience another dimension of reading. If the President of the United States (POTUS) can take a time to write, a simple but poignant book with a message of love, anyone can write.
