Riassunto: Jan Spivey Gilchrist creates a stunning picture book using poetic language and vibrant watercolors to depict what became one of America's most historic moments. Best friends, Breyna and Emily have always heard the grown-ups talk about the historic moments they witnessed in thier pasts. So when the girls hear about the possibility of history being made on November 4, 2008 they plan a special sleepover at Breyna's house. Breyna's parents and greanparents help to make the night memorable, "Grandpa popped popcorn that sounded like tiny crickets dancing, tap, tap, tap." The two girls hear the announcement of the First African American President of the United States of America. Children can document their November 4, 2008 evening on the last page of this book and keep, Obama: The Day the World Danced, as a family heirloom forever.
