Barack Obama's fascinating life story is briefly recounted by author and poet Jonah Winter. Narrator Ezra Knight has a melodious voice much like Obama's. He tells the beautiful and unique story in a manner that complements the biography. Obama's international life, exotic pets, diverse schools, and loving family are perfectly captured, as well as his questioning of his own identity: "Who am I? Where do I belong?" As Obama matures, he finds answers through the Civil Rights movement and the work of Martin Luther King, Jr., parts of the story that Knight delivers with just the right touch. Movingly, Obama's own books are highlighted for young listeners. This production can function as a read-along, as one version has page-turn signals.
