American presidents' administrations are thoroughly studied, analyzed, and chronicled. But what about these politicians' lives before being elected to the country's highest office? Barack Obama's unique story and life experiences, both the triumphant and the challenging, will give young readers insight into his road to the White House. They'll follow him from his earliest days in Hawaii to his historic 2008 election, learning interesting tidbits along the way, such as the fact that he had a pet ape named Tata. Details about the events and lessons that shaped him into our 44th president are also shared. Photographs, maps, quotes, and "fun facts" supplement the text and engage the reader.
