Enslow Publishers, Inc. Announces Publication of Children’s Books Highlighting the Obama Family
Children are fascinated with the first family and cannot read enough about them. The Obama Family Photo Album is a four-book series for young readers that should not be overlooked.
By: Amy Vida
The Obamas are the most famous family in America and Enslow Publishers is one of the first to publish photo-biographies written especially for young readers about the first family. “We took our time and found the best photos to complement the fun facts about President Obama and his family,” explains Mark Enslow, President. “Each book has unique text, and an abundance of stunning photos. Young readers are sure to enjoy seeing President Obama body surfing in Hawaii and riding bumper cars with daughter Sasha.”
Visually capturing the excitement of a historic election year along with providing a great reading experience, these four new titles highlight our nation's first family and are available immediately.
Celebrating President Barack Obama in Pictures follows Barack Obama from his childhood and student life, including Harvard Law School, to his days as senator and then president. Celebrating First Lady Michelle Obama in Pictures covers Michelle Obama’s childhood, careers, and her role as first lady, sharing the events in her life during her journey into history. Celebrating the Inauguration of Barack Obama in Pictures takes readers through the historic events of the inauguration, from the whistle stop train tour to the inaugural balls. This book captures the excitement of the enormous crowds who gathered to witness one of the most important events in United States history. Celebrating the Obama Family in Pictures contains many candid photos of the family having fun together—before and after they moved into the White House–especially with their new dog, Bo. “Aimed at grades 3-4, this title shows the joy and fun the first family has together,” says Diane Chen, School Library Information Specialist at John F. Kennedy Middle School in Nashville, Tennessee. “Interest level will extend far beyond those grades and I intend to put this in my middle school collection. Author Jane Katirgis has paired clear writing without hyperbole as she describes these photographs.”
This series, published in time for summer reading, will also come in handy for report writing during the school year. For young readers in grades 3-4, all four titles make a great addition to any book collection, at home or in the library. Diane Chen agrees, “These titles will be popular and receive heavy use–they are worth the investment.”
