I AM 44!
On his next journey, Langston learns about the many obstacles Barack Obama overcame to become The 44th President of The United States of America. If you enjoyed My Kind of Me and Real Imagination, you won’t want to miss I AM 44! You’ll be inspired as you learn about, or are reminded of what became some of the greatest moments of Black History, all because one man believed we can… And by the end you’ll know, that YOU TOO CAN DEFY the ODDS!
Most of us decide what we want to be as children, and for many of us that changed over time, or even day of the week. Some of that change was based solely on us, and other times that change was based on how those around us felt about our dreams. Real Imagination encourages children to believe in their wildest dreams and reassures them that it's okay to be whatever they want to be.
My Kind of Me
It appears to me that people are most affected by what others think of them when they lack self-identity. My Kind of Me is meant to inspire self-love, and challenge children to accept themselves no matter what others think or say. The character of Langston likes who he is and is comfortable being himself in any situation. Styles and fads will come and go, but at the end of an era you will still be you.
