Posted on 03/04/2009 8:27:13 AM PST by MNDude
President Obama, the merchandising phenomenon, has been a boon to sidewalk T-shirt vendors everywhere, the Washington Times reports.
Less conspicuous, perhaps, is the equally robust success of the children's book industry in marketing Obama's hopeful aura and personal history to parents of young children.
Are children's book publishers seeking to indoctrinate impressionable young readers -- or are they simply obeying the laws of supply and demand?
When the country elects a new president, publishers characteristically issue a biography or two geared toward young readers.
But in the case of Obama, publishers are tapping into unusual levels of excitement and curiosity.
Justin Chanda, vice president of Simon & Schuster's Books for Young Readers imprint, told the Washington Times he and his team felt rumbles of a larger presence the day after Obama's triumph in the January 2008 Iowa caucuses.
They wanted a book - double-quick.
In industry parlance, they call it a "crash."

The Childrens bed time story book on Barack Obama,
...’ There was once upon a time,
a boy born in - - - The End’.......
This, along with the coins and plates, are possibly going to ring hollow in a couple of years
Makes great burning material.
Tell me that is not the cover....oh gish. Talk about messiah complex X10. Just ew!
Cute little Kenyan kid.
Yep, on Amazon.
The devotion to Obama reminds me of the old Nazi newsreel that shows an obsessed, bug-eyed woman desperately trying to touch Der Fuhrer. Its extremely creepy to me. What’s next creepy murals of Obama on buildings and fences around the country.
And the most ironic considering Obama's challenges as a youth:Raising the Next Barack Obama: A Guide to Develop Core Principles for Success in Your Child
LOL. I can’t wait to pick one of these up at a thrift store in a few years. What a hoot. This hero worship will be ancient history in a few years.
LOL - I saw similar and actually picked it up and thumbed through one...amusing until you consider that the authors wrote it in earnest and that a multitude of children will read them.
What fun is a coloring book that only needs one crayon?
I can hardly wait for them to become part of the shunned .50 cent sale rack. Then I can buy a bunch, and give them out to libs as “screw you, I told you so gifts”
LOL. The target market still has money to purchase it?
Well, RED could be another color
This reminds me of all the Martin Luther King crap in elementary school. They’re probably going to add a whole semester devoted to worshiping Bama.
I’m sure some search savvy FReeper can find the articles about the Iraqi school textbooks that were replaced when Saddam was overthrown. I guess even the math books were indoctrinating children. Instead of 2 apples plus 1 apple equals 3 apples, story problems had 2 Saddams plus 1 Saddam equals 3 Saddams, complete with little pictures of Saddam.
I wonder if there will be a version with a 33 1/3rd record that you play so it can tell you when to turn the pages. B-P
Is that HAIR growing out of her FOREHEAD?????
Boys and girls, Once upon a time there was a Very Hungry Socialist Caterpillar who ate his way through the greatest nation on earth, he ate his way through the economy, he ate his way through health care, he ate his way through national defense. And when he was done there was nothing left for the future. The End.
Obama kids stories? Maybe book burning isn’t such a bad idea after all... Any book depicting socialism in a positive light should be burned.
This makes me want to puke. I am so glad we have no young ones to see this crap.
Perhaps the Islamists are also doing this to boost their new buddy in the White House.
I think somebody needs to design an Obama Pooper-Scooper with “YES I CAN” engraved on the top of the shovel part.
Most ironic about that cover is the fact that Obama would favor aborting that kid if the mother so chose.
The worst part is that the paper they use isn’t even soft enougth to use as toilet paper. I guess I could get some satisfaction from lining the cat box with it and letting the cat give MulatObama my thoughts on his job performance.
They’ve already hit the clearance shelves at my Walgreen’s — Collector Inauguration plates at half price. When they get down to fifty cents I might buy some for skeet.
“Fred Sanford! You old heathen!”
A lovesick kids’ writer named Nikki
Much wanted to have Great One’s dickie.
Her dildo was black
So she named it Barack
And now she can e’er have a quickie.
Mein Kampf was blockbuster bestseller in its time...leather-bound, gilt-edged copies were considered classy gifts, and the book was prominently displayed in proud homes.
The clear, deliberate, overt manufacture of a Zero personality cult is one of the most frightening things I've seen in my decades of watching American culture. There is no good outcome.
I've never the kind of coverage in terms of not just articles, but magazine covers given Obama. This truly is reminiscent of totalitarian countries.
