(Newser) – In addition to "president," Barack Obama can already call himself an author—but now you can add "children's author" to his many hats. His Of Thee I Sing: A Letter to My Daughters was written before he took office and will be released Nov. 16, the Christian Science Monitor reports. The book, according to Random House, is "a moving tribute to thirteen groundbreaking Americans and the ideals that have shaped our nation," including Georgia O’Keeffe, Jackie Robinson, and George Washington. Proceeds will benefit the children of fallen and disabled soldiers, the AP adds. (Read more President Obama stories.)
