I Live Real Close To Where You Used To Live
Kids' Letters to Michelle Obama (and to Sasha, Malia, & Bo)
I Live Real Close to Where You Used to Live is a collection of letters written by kids across America to Michelle Obama and her daughters Malia and Sasha (plus a few to their dog Bo). The book is bursting with advice, observations, and questions for the First Lady and her family.
No topic is off-limits; the letters deal with issues ranging from immigration and war to Easy-Bake Ovens and dog food. While some of the messages are heartfelt – “Please help to stop bullying so the kids can be safe in school” – and others are hilarious – “Who made up the whales?” – all of the letters are unabashedly honest.
I Live Real Close To Where You Used To Live includes thoughts and suggestions such as the following:

"Try to keep drugs off the streets. Robots may be able to help you." —Aidan Sheill-Loomis, age 9, and Nicolas W. Brooke, age 10, Boston
"Thank you for helping people in need and supporting them and sticking up for them."—Neyin Sanders, age 9, Chicago
