Joey: The Story of Joe Biden

Written by Dr. Jill Biden and Kathleen Krull and Illustrated by Amy June Bates

Joe Biden grew up in Scranton, Pennsylvania, the oldest of four children. His parents always encouraged him and his siblings to be independent and strong. The family moved to Wilmington, Delaware, where at twenty-nine, Biden was elected one the youngest United States Senators ever elected. This is his story. Joey is the first ever picture book about the young life of Joe Biden, the 47th Vice President of the United States, and now President-Elect. This book includes never before told family stories about the president-elect and former vice president’s childhood—written by Jill Biden, his spouse.
