Dreams from My Father (Adapted for Young Adults)

A Story of Race and Inheritance

Written by Barack Obama

This is a beautifully written book about President Obama, from his humble beginnings to his rise as a US Senator. The way he writes it is easy to put yourself in his shoes and envision what he experienced. This would be a great addition to any collection, as it is a modern autobiography of our 44th President. This book could be a “mirror” to many of our underrepresented students – showing them they can do big things and make big dreams come true. I would love to see this book used in a history class learning about American Presidents or in an ELA class about writing styles and narratives. This was a great book and I recommend it to anyone!
