*President Obama will release a children’s book, titled “Of Thee I Sing: A Letter to My Daughters,” on Nov. 16.

Publishers Alfred A. Knopf Books for Young Readers, an imprint of Random House Children’s Books, announced today that the book honors 13 Americans, including artist Georgia O’Keeffe, baseball giant Jackie Robinson and George Washington.

The title will sell for $17.99 with the proceeds going to a scholarship fund for the children of fallen and disabled US troops.

The book was promised as part of a three-book deal Obama inked in December 2004, when he was a senator-elect from Illinois, reports the AP.
