Kluger and Tabatsky started the project after the 2008 election by emailing a few friends to see if their kids wanted to say something to the president-elect. Those friends wrote others, and within six weeks more than 1,000 letters were submitted. The 179 children selected are from a wide variety of backgrounds--
“Despite their differences, their letters are uniformly inspirational,”
Says publisher Barry Beckham, “I heard about the project from a parent, and was astounded when I first saw these wonderful letters highlighted by the gorgeous color layouts.” He adds, “I told the editors that they had assembled a ground-breaking anthology of letters to President Obama. It will truly be a collector’s item, and it’s a testament to the great promise of our future generations.”
Linda Ellerbee, who wrote the foreword, says, "They believe they can change their world. They understand citizenship and want to participate. And that is the kind of honesty you will find in this book.”
