Of Thee I Sing: A Letter to My Daughters by Barack Obama

And a Chance to Donate to the Fisher House Foundation


In this tender, beautiful letter to his daughters, President Barack Obama has written a moving tribute to thirteen groundbreaking Americans and the ideals that have shaped our nation. From the artistry of Georgia O’Keeffe, to the courage of Jackie Robinson, to the patriotism of George Washington, President Obama sees the traits of these heroes within his own children, and within all of America’s children.

Breathtaking, evocative illustrations by award-winning artist Loren Long at once capture the personalities and achievements of these great Americans and the innocence and promise of childhood.

This beautiful book celebrates the characteristics that unite all Americans, from our nation’s founders to generations to come. It is about the potential within each of us to pursue our dreams and forge our own paths. It is a treasure to cherish with your family forever.

Barack Obama is the forty-fourth president of the United States. Born in Hawaii to a mother from Kansas and a father from Kenya, he himself is now the father of two daughters, Malia and Sasha. It was spending time with them that inspired him to write Of Thee I Sing.

Donation information: The President will donate after-tax proceeds from his children’s book to a scholarship program run by the Fisher House Foundation dedicated to providing scholarships to the children of fallen and disabled service members.  This scholarship fund will be a subset of the Fisher House Foundation’s current Scholarship for Military Children Program.  Please visit www.fisherhouse.org for additional details.  Under the Scholarship for Military Children Program, Fisher House Foundation has provided more than $8.3 million in scholarships over the past ten years.  This program will enable Fisher House Foundation to provide additional scholarships dedicated to those children whose parents have died or become disabled in the service of our country.
