ORLANDO, Fla., Sept. 19, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- THE MOST COMPREHENSIVE telling of Barack Obama's remarkable and inspiring story is now available to young readers, as they tap, pinch, and swipe their way through this vibrant, multi-touch, multimedia, e-book series for iPad®. Entitled The Story of Barack Obama: African American, Civil Rights Activist, U.S. President, World Leader, and Nobel Peace Prize Winner, this three-volume biographical and historical series is of high editorial quality and destined to become a classic. Containing more than 400 high-interest photographs and videos, this visually rich series faithfully chronicles the life and times of America's 44th president—the prevailing attitudes and historical events that shaped the man and the man who made history.
THE STORY OF A MAN AND A NATION TOLD IN THREE VOLUMES
The Story of Barack, Vol. 1: Born Biracial (1961–1979) recounts Barack Obama's formative years—growing up fatherless as a biracial child while America's Civil Rights Movement rages on.
The Story of Barack, Vol. 2: Finding His Calling (1979–2008) illuminates Barack's struggles with his racial identity as a young man and his remarkable transformation from a disaffected slacker to a dedicated public servant, as America unknowingly prepares for its first African-American president.
The Story of Barack, Vol. 3: Being President (2008–2012) for the first time takes readers behind the scenes, telling the backstories, as Barack and his family move into the White House at a time when the nation is facing monumental challenges at home and abroad. Young readers will learn about the gut-wrenching decisions Barack would have to make during the first four years of his presidency; decisions that would not only guide the nation through perilous times but also reveal the character of the man.
