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.
