“With the historic back drop of the first African-American President it is fitting that literature capture that moment with a historic meeting of a little African-American girl, Ella B. Jenkins, meeting the President. Eve Lynne Robinson has captured that proud essence in a class trip that also opens the door to a series about the fictional Ella B. Jenkins.
Life has certainly imitated art and the character of Ella B. Jenkins is an important add to the landscape. In children’s literature as with all literature it is important for kids to see themselves reflected and Ella B. Jenkins is a welcome addition.
Ella is every kid for certain regardless of gender or race, but certainly with a special appeal to kids and girls of color. With this first meeting kids will know that their dreams of a better life, a better world, and being president can come true.
Here’s to hoping for more in this series beyond the wonderful first step. The teases at the end of the book leave us hoping for more.”

“Ella B. Jenkins is bringing a fresh, exciting take on what a role model can be when it comes to those that children look up to. Her journey is that of others around the world.”

“The book Ella B. Jenkins Meets President Barack Obama by local author Eve Lynne is truly a gem. My students as well as my own daughters thorougly enjoyed the story and the vivid illustrations. As a teacher, I love how the story tied into our social studies curriculum and it was also a great segue into letter writing, which is a second grade standard. My class loved reading about a little girl winning a contest and actually getting to meet the president. It was a great way to launch into many classroom discussions. We can’t wait for the next book in the series.”
