Our Enduring Spirit Greg Ruth

Our Enduring Spirit illustrated by Greg Ruth, words by President Barack Obama I remember hearing about this book earlier in the year, I couldn't wait for it to be released. Its out now and its gorgeous. The more I look at it the more I appreciate it. Ruth has illustrated President Obama's first words to America. He used Sumi and Ink to capture this historic moment in American history. The first African American to be elected will always stand out, regardless of any one's opinions of Barack Obama. When President Obama took the oath of office on January 20, 2009, we lived history.

President Obama's speech is a journey through American history, that will touch, educate and lead to discussions. With a brush, Ruth has taken an essential part of that day, and made it a pleasure for young readers. Our Enduring Spirit reminds us that history is for the old and young. The entire inaugural speech is included at the back of the book. This is a must for any library, school or home. Ages 7up
