Obama: The Day the World Danced

obamaAuthor and Illustrator: Jan Spivey Gilchrist

Best friend, Breyna and Emily have always heard the grown-ups talk about the historic moments they witnessed in their pasts.  So when the girls hear about the possibility of history being made on November 4, 2008 they plan a special sleepover at Breyna’s house.  Breyna’s parents and grandparents help to make the night memorable, “Grandpa popped popcorn that sounded like tiny crickets dancing, tap, tap, tap.”  Children can document their November 4, 2008 evening on the last page of this book and keep, Obama: The Day the World Danced, as a family heirloom forever.
