Books on My Reading List #2

The next book that is on my list is Barack Obama’s autobiography Dreams From My Father. The book outlines Obama’s life and tells of his struggles growing up as a half black half white child. His book is inspiring, I am reading it now, and it is an all around good read. Obama is a powerful writer and the humanitarian issues that he discusses in his book will be sure to allow your gifted student some good material for deep thought. The book does have some mature content though, and I would say that it is not suitable for students under high school level maturity. This book could also be a good one to read with your gifted student because good dialog could easily result from reading Obama’s book. Look for more segments from Books on My Reading List coming soon.
