President Barack Obama offers a tribute to thirteen historically important Americans and the ideals that have shaped the nation–from the artistry of Georgia O’Keeffe to the courage of Jackie Robinson and the patriotism of George Washington.
Wonderful illustrations and a touching letter from a father to his daughters about the legacy of their nation. A good entry to some american history and important figures of the country. Most importantly, this book teaches young readers to be proud of how they are, to respect what others have done before them and to understand that the world is full of posibilities. Lovely.
