This is an easy book to review without reading all of it. It consists of just over pages of letters to President Obama by children of a wide range of ages, some short, some long, with a scattering of drawings. It is a book to dip into. Jory John, the Editor and progenitor of this book, runs a non-profit writing and tutoring centre at Valencia Street, San Francisco. School students go to the centre to do their homework and creative writing. When there was a spontaneous mass demonstration of delight in the neighbourhood at the election of President Obama, Jory asked the students to write letters for the President.
