Random House's Fastest-Selling Picture Book: Obama's 'Of Thee I Sing'

President Barack Obama's latest book may not outsell "The Audacity of Hope," but it's off to a good start.

Random House Children's Books announced Tuesday that "Of Thee I Sing," a picture book Obama wrote before he was president, sold 50,000 copies in its first five days. The publisher called it the fastest-selling picture book in the company's history.

"Of Thee I Sing" is a tribute to Jackie Robinson, George Washington and other Americans. It came out Nov. 16.

Obama is donating his proceeds from it to a scholarship fund for children of disabled and fallen soldiers.
