It was a fight for what kind of country America should be.
Abraham Lincoln is one of the most famous US Presidents – but he was not always the strong, confident leader.
In fact, he had the humblest of origins – no running water, electricity and a dirt floor. His mother died young and he often worked long hours on the farm – even when he was a child.
But what really changed his life was education.
Reading opened whole worlds for Abraham.
Reading opened doors for young Abraham and his honesty (and desire to do good) really carried him.
As he grew older, and wiser, Abraham decided that he wanted to change America for the better – and even hundreds of years later – we have not forgotten.
At his inauguration, Abraham warned that he wouldn’t allow the country to be split in two.
Hats off to this book!
I absolutely LOVED it from cover to cover.
It was so much fun to learn about Abraham’s childhood and how he went from a farm boy to a lawyer to a senator to a president.
I liked the little timeline that went throughout the book and I really felt like I was learning a lot.
The illustrations were simply amazing and truly made the book memorable. The style and presence of so many pictures made the book so much fun to read.
All in all – this one was fabulous! Absolutely wonderful for the curious kid in your life!!
A huge thank you to Carla Jablonski and Rockridge Press for sending me a free copy in exchange for an honest review
