Katherine Tegen Books, Paperback, 9780061703966, 32pp.

Publication Date: September 21, 2010


This is a journey that began in many places.

It began in Kansas, home of Barack's mother.

It began in Africa, home of Barack's father.

It began in Hawaii one moonlit night, the night that Barack was born.

Sometimes it was a lonely journey.

Sometimes it was an enchanted journey.

But throughout this most unusual ride, this boy often wondered:

Who am I?

Where do I belong?

Jonah Winter and AG Ford re-create the extraordinary story behind the rise of America's first African-American president, Barack Obama, in this stunning picture book.
