SILVER SPRING, MD - 3/8/2016 (PRESS RELEASE JET) -- Beckham Publications Group, Inc. (www.beckhahouse.com) announced an eBook price slash of children’s letters to President Obama to celebrate the profound influence the president has had on young people.
“He has enthralled, encouraged and advocated for our kids before and after the book was published during his second term in 2009,” says publisher Barry Beckham. “Now in his last year, we are even more aware of the deep affection he has shown for our children.”
The Kindle eBook http://tinyurl.com/zk8feek lists for $9.95 but will be cut to as low as 99 cents during a seven-day Kindle promotional days event starting March 10.

Beckham calls the book a landmark collection of letters and drawings from kids ages four to 18. The full-color large format title was compiled and edited by journalists Bruce Kluger and David Tabatsky with a foreword by Linda Ellerbee.
Kluger and Tabatsky started the project after the 2008 election by emailing a few friends to see if their kids wanted to say something to the president-elect. Those friends wrote others, and within six weeks more than a thousand letters were submitted. The 179 children selected are from a wide variety of backgrounds—representing SilveManhattan private schools, poor school districts in Nebraska, 29 states, and every region of the country.
“Despite their differences, their letters are uniformly inspirational,” says Kluger. “They express their hopes, fears, and dreams about the world. They exhibit boundless excitement about the historic election, and David and I wanted to recapture that spirit.”
Says publisher Barry Beckham, “They have assembled a ground-breaking anthology of letters to President Obama. It will truly be a collector’s item, and it’s a testament to the great promise of our future generations.”
Linda Ellerbee, who wrote the foreword, says, "They believe they can change their world. They understand citizenship and want to participate. And that is the kind of honesty you will find in this book.”
Beckham Publications will donate a portion of book proceeds to United Planning Organization, a Washington, DC-based community action agency offering learning programs for low-income families.
