Just in time for the holidays, 826 National, a nonprofit that tutors kids in creative and expository writing, recently asked its students to pen letters to the First Lady. The letters to Mrs. Obama were then compiled in I Live Real Close to Where You Used to Live: Kids’ Letters to Michelle Obama (and to Sasha, Malia, and Bo). It is a follow-up to 826's collection of letters to President Obama. The book is available for $12 beginning December 13, with proceeds supporting 826 programs in cities around the country.
