SashaBook - 2009
Fun-loving Sasha Obama is one of the youngest children to live in the White House. The seven-year-old and her ten-year-old sister Malia are the great-great grandchildren of a slave. They are also the first African-American children to call 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue in Washington, D.C., home now that their father, Barack Obama, has become the 44th president of the United States. For as long as young Sasha can remember, her father has been actively involved in politics, first as a state senator and then as a U.S. senator representing Illinois. As her daddy campaigned for public office, he never forgot his obligation as a father to Sasha, and whenever possible he took her along on his journey across America, preaching his "Yes We Can" message of change and inclusion to all who would listen.
