Obama children's book sells 50,000 copies in five days

NEW YORK – President Barack Obama's latest book may not outsell "The Audacity of Hope," but it's off to a good start.
Random House Children's Books announced Tuesday that "Of Thee I Sing," a picture book Obama wrote before he was president, sold 50,000 copies in its first five days. The publisher called it the fastest selling picture book in the company's history.
"Of Thee I Sing" is a tribute to Jackie Robinson, George Washington and other Americans. It came out Nov. 16.
Obama is donating his proceeds from it to a scholarship fund for children of disabled and fallen soldiers. - AP (Yahoo News)
