Obama’s Favorite Books

My 4-day weekend was spent – literally – reading books and researching the news. Part of my mission was to ask Twitter and Facebook friends for their three, all-time favorite books. I know. It’s not a unique question but it is one that we should keep revisiting. Our students should continue to understand the importance of
reading. And, while I am at it, I cannot forget the kidsheartauthors who devoted their Valentine’s Day to reading. Ironically, CBS News Anchor, Katie Couric, asked the now, President Obama, the same question, back in October. 


  1. Shamelessly, I love the Bur Bur and Friends children’s book series. [smile] But my one all time favorite is “The Giving Tree” because it speaks to the unconditional love that only a parent can know.

    Well, Kakie, my daughter still is reading Bur Bur and Friends. :) Maybe you should send Sasha and Malia an autographed copy?
