Hi y'all,

Quick update on "Our President Was Called Barack": I've got the first round of draft layouts from our amazing book designer, my fellow Obama 2012 alum Amanda Buck, and they look so good, y'all. 

A couple of screenshots here for you:

Title page! (Bo!!)

 First two-page spread, kicking off the story!

 Another spread, this one about how young Barack got into organizing!

 Can't wait to show you all the whole thing. 

Thanks again for making it possible,

Laura

      Love it. It’s already inspirational. Goodness knows we need that for our kids. For us all. Good job!

      What a perfect definition of a community organizer -- "someone who brings neighbors together to change things for the better where they live." I hope it inspires children to want to be one some day!

      Karen—that illustration of Bo is the title page. The cover is an illustration of President Obama and Bo looking at the White House together :)

      I'm wondering why you decided to put Bo on the cover instead of the man himself?
