Obama children's book `Of Thee I Sing' out Nov. 16!

Coming two weeks after Election Day, a book from President Barack Obama for some of the nation's nonvoters: inspirational stories for children about American pioneers.

"Of Thee I Sing: A Letter to My Daughters" is a tribute to 13 groundbreaking Americans, from the first president, George Washington, to baseball great Jackie Robinson to artist Georgia O'Keeffe. It will be released Nov. 16 by Alfred A. Knopf Books for Young Readers, an imprint of Random House Children's Books, which will officially announce the new work Tuesday. Knopf declined to identify the other 10 subjects.

Obama's 40-page book will have a first printing of 500,000 copies and a list price of $17.99. Both of Obama's previous works, the memoir "Dreams From My Father" and the policy book "The Audacity of Hope," are million sellers published by Crown, a division of Random House Inc.

The president will donate any author proceeds to "a scholarship fund for the children of fallen and disabled soldiers serving our nation," the publisher said in a statement.

Obama agreed with Random House in 2004 to write a children's book, which, according to the publisher, he completed before he became president. "Of Thee I Sing" is part of a $1.9 million, three-book deal with Random House reached in 2004, according to a disclosure report filed in 2005, when Obama was a U.S. senator from Illinois. The other two books were nonfiction.

Obama also had a $500,000 agreement with Random House in January 2009 for an abridged young-adult edition of "Dreams of My Father" to be "prepared and released by the publisher subject to the president's approval," according to the disclosure form.

Knopf spokeswoman Noreen Herits declined to say if Obama would promote his children's book or whether it would be available in audio or digital formats, although an official with knowledge of the book said an e-edition would come out simultaneously with the print version. The official was not authorized to publicly discuss the project and asked not to be identified.

The e-book is unlikely to be available on Amazon.com's Kindle reader, the most popular e-device, which does not allow for illustrated texts. Random House does not currently sell books directly through the Apple iPad store, but in a separate announcement Monday the publisher said it had begun a partnership with the Seattle-based digital company Smashing Ideas to work on children's books apps for electronic devices, including the iPad.

Obama's original agreement for the children's book includes a royalties scale for an audio books edition.

Laura Bush promotes women's literacy!

Former First Lady Laura Bush says that teaching more women around the world to read and write can dramatically improve their lives and those of their children.

Bush, a UNESCO honorary ambassador, focused Tuesday on the importance of educating women in developing nations during an International Literacy Day event at U.N. headquarters.

The former librarian says that literate, educated women are more engaged members of society and can take better care of their children's education and health.

About one in five adults today is illiterate, and about two-thirds of those are women.

Schwarzenegger-Shriver daughter writes first book!

Katherine Schwarzenegger is following in the footsteps of her high-achieving parents, California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger and Maria Shriver.

The 20-year-old college student has written a book coming out next week that's aimed at helping girls gain confidence in their bodies and themselves. It's titled "Rock What You've Got: Secrets to Loving Your Inner and Outer Beauty" (Hyperion).

Schwarzenegger says part of the motivation for the book was overhearing her preteen cousins talk about their desire to be thin and "sexy." She's also faced her own battle with self-esteem as a teenager in the public eye.

The book is the first for Katherine Schwarzenegger, a junior at the USC Annenberg School for Communication & Journalism. Her mother, a former NBC News correspondent, also is an author.
