(4) K-3 Illustrated by AG Ford. This competent companion to Jonah Winter's picture book biography Barack shows how Michelle Robinson transcended her modest Chicago upbringing to become a professional success long before becoming the U.S.'s first African American First Lady. Kid-pleasing details, such as the subject's favorite childhood TV show (The Brady Bunch), abound. The photorealistic paintings include some awkwardly proportioned representations of Michelle and her family.
