Who Is Michelle Obama?

by Megan Stine
illustrated by John O Brien

Ref: 14900

A fast paced, easily digestible biography of Michelle Obama from her birth on the South Side of Chicago to her years of hard study at Princeton and Harvard, to a meeting with a certain Barack Obama, to her critical role in his rise towards the presidency- right up until Barack's reelection for a second term in 2012. Fine line black and white illustrations provide extra detail such as the bird's eye diagram of the White House and the U.S.A. state maps. And, as with the other titles in the series, there are some excellent fact boxes offering a wider historical context- here, boxes on other First Ladies such as Martha Washington, Eleanor Roosevelt, Dolley Madison, Jackie Kennedy and Hillary Clinton. A neat little timeline of key moments in Michelle Obama's life runs parallel to a timeline of key events around the world. Age 8-12, American Import Paperback 107pp
