Obama writes children's book
President Barack Obama has written his first children's book, profiles of 13 inspirational American pioneers.
The book, titled 'Of Thee I Sing: A Letter to My Daughters', features a cover picture of his daughters Sasha and Malia walking the family dog, Bo, along a grassy field.
Given the success of Mr Obama's previous works, and despite his falling popularity at the polls, it is likely to be a best seller when it is published on November 2, two weeks after the American mid-term elections.
The latest book was written before Mr Obama entered the White House and is part of a $1.9m (€1.4m), three-book deal which included 'The Audacity of Hope' and another to be published after he leaves office. (© Daily Telegraph, London)
