Lawyer, community leader, senator, father, husband. All these words describe Barack Obama. But none are as historic as these: first African-American president of the United States. From his childhood and student life, including Harvard Law School, to his days as senator and then president, this photo-biography celebrates the events in Barack Obama's life during his journey into history. Young readers will also enjoy some light-hearted photos of Obama at more casual outings, such as body surfing in Hawaii, and playing golf and basketball.
