New York - President Barack Obama is still a hit with the nation's book buyers.

Obama's tribute to 13 American ground breakers, Of Thee I Sing, was in the top 25 on Amazon.com and Barnes & Noble.com as of Wednesday, less than two days after the children's book was announced and two months before its scheduled release. Random House Children's Books plans a first printing of 500 000 copies.

Both of Obama's previous works, the memoir Dreams From My Father and the policy book The Audacity of Hope, are million sellers.
