Earlier this week President Obama announced his plans to release a childrens illustrated book and before he could finish his sentence the book was already in the top 25 for both Amazon.com and BarnesandNoble.com. Scheduled to hit shelves on November 16, “Of Thee I Sing: A Letter to My Daughters” is a 40 page slim volume with a small amount of text written by Obama with illustrations by Loren Long, including the representation of Malia and Sasha on the cover, but the book is not about the first daughters; it’s a tribute to 13 Americans and their commitment to the nation, including Artist Georgia O’Keeffe, baseball great Jackie Robinson and President George Washington.
The book will retail for $17.99 and Obama has said he will donate proceeds to a scholarship fund for military children with a parent who was killed or disabled.
