President Obama, who has two best-sellers to his name, will release a book for children this week, Of Thee I Sing: A Letter to My Daughters.

The 31-page book, for kids ages 3 and up, is filled with lyrical questions for Malia, 12, and Sasha, 9, opening with, “Have I told you lately how wonderful you are?”
