Obama on Noggin Channel for Kids is No April Fool's Day Joke

Cable's Nickelodeon Channel suddenly turned political before last year's election, and its spin-off channel for pre-schoolers, Noggin, featured Obama spots for Black History Month.

Barack Obama is the first African-American to be President.

That is what's called a historic event.

Leading a country is no easy task. So what does he do to relax you may ask?

He loves shrimp linguini and the chili he cooks.

He also plays Scrabble; collects comic books.

He likes classical and hip hop and jazz music too.

He always goes shopping for the same type of shoe!

He goes on vacation and takes walks on beaches.

He loves basketball; it's his favorite sport.

In the White House backyard he'll have his own court.

He reads bedtime stories to his daughters at night.
