Before he was the President of the United States, Barack Obama was a father – and an author. He hasn’t let his high office keep him from fulfilling either of those other roles. In fact, the Commander in Chief has written a new children’s book that will be released in November.

Of Thee I Sing: A Letter to My Daughters is a tribute to Americans of historical significance. Georgia O’Keeffe, Jackie Robinson and George Washington are among the 13 people profiled in the book. Illustrated by award-winning author Loren Long, it features Malia and Sasha Obama on the cover – along with the family dog, Bo.

The First Daughters, depicted in confident mid-stride across a grassy field, are led by their fearless companion, who always seems to know exactly where he’s going. Not a bad pal to have in the White House!

The book’s proceeds will go toward a scholarship fund for children of soldiers who have been killed or disabled in service.
