Barack Obama, 44th President of the United States
I found this 40 page biography to be a good overview biography of President Obama. It has information about his childhood, his school life - both elementary and high school as well as college and law school - his career before politics and, of course, his political career.
The biographical portion of the book ends with this election and inauguration and does not talk about the four years since he took office.
The book includes lots of photographs of President Obama and his family members throughout his life.
The last ten pages of the book have general information about the US government, such as the branches of the government, who's in line for the presidency if something happens to the president, a list of all the presidents, etc., and then a glossary and some suggested web sites for further research.
This book was provided in a middle level bookshelf, and it seems like a very appropriate resource for middle schoolers looking for good background information on Barack Obama.
