    I saw this at the book store when I was picking up some books for my friends' new baby. I was feeling nostalgic for the days when you could hear the latest update from the White House without wanting to scream or flee the country. Unfortunately, this book just made me sad for the hopefulness that these young people had for changes the President Obama could make -- and in many instances did make, until we elected a racist narcissist hellbent on erasing everything our first minority president had I saw this at the book store when I was picking up some books for my friends' new baby.

    I read this book when it first came out. I recently came across it again, and was drawn to re-read these letters, now that we are in a time when so many of us search in vain for a sense of hope about our country's leaders. I also have a personal connection to the book: My son, now a high-school senior, submitted a letter to this contest when he was six, and was one of the winners, so his letter appears in the book. He's the boy who offered to teach the Leader of the Free World how to bowl! Some o I read this book when it first came out.

He's the boy who offered to teach the Leader of the Free World how to bowl! Some of the letters are funny; some are thought-provoking or heartbreaking. Some manage to be all three. Children ask the president for jobs for their parents, money for the rent, looser immigration laws so a deported mother can come back home, a cure for cancer, and lower tuition prices for an older sister who has been accepted to top-notch schools but can't afford to attend. Others ask for chocolate cake, playdates with Malia and Sasha, or Guitar Hero! All are a good reminder that the decisions presidents make affect many people who have no voice in government.

    These kids were feeling the same exhilaration as I was the day Barack Obama became President.

    Cute, but after awhile the kids’ letters to the President seem random and less entertaining. Interesting idea for a book.

    Reading this was such an experience, looking at how amazingly creative kids can be with their ideas, how they believe in their leader and trust him to make America better, how they believe the President would be interested in knowing about their life, family, interests and concerns. The book contains letters that little kids have written to President Obama, in various formats, kreativ spelings, about different topics that form an important aspect of their little lives.

    Hilarious and heartwarming! I sincerely hope that Mr. President gets to read some of these when he needs a pick-me-up.
