""Abraham Lincoln" by Amy L. Cohn and Suzy Schmidt tells the story of Abraham's Lincoln life from his birth to his death. The book shares factual information and takes readers on an adventure as they share about each stage of Lincoln's life. The book describes all of the places Lincoln lived and tells all about the various jobs he had. The book also uses large text and words that are very appropriate and easy to understand for young readers.

Additionally, this book is filled with beautiful water-colors by David A. Johnson. For every page of text, there is also a page of pictures. The pictures are very nicely done and accurately describe the scene that is being described by the adjoining words. Furthermore, the pictures are realistic and show a progression in Lincoln's appearance as he grows and ages over the course of his life.

I liked this book and think it would be beneficial for young readers. I really enjoyed that it included pictures and think this would help make it fun for kids to read. Moreover, I appreciated that the book was very appropriate for its audience and did not overwhelm young children with dates and facts, but rather, it simply told the story of Lincoln's life in a way that was easy for them to understand and appreciate.

"When you first peer at the cover of this biographical picture book, you see a very tall book. The colors of the cover are also very rustic and something you would associate one of our past presidents with. The picture of the boy on the cover is also very well drawn and makes you want to look inside.

The biographical picture book "Abraham Lincoln" written by Amy Cohn and illustrations by David Johnson was a great book to sit down and read. This would be a great book to read to children because one very known fact about Lincoln was that he was VERY tall and the book itself is very tall. Like any person would understand, this book takes the reader through the adventurous and courageous life of Abraham Lincoln. Throughout the entire book, the detailed rustic looking pictures go so well along with the words that are across the page from it. It shows Lincoln at different stages of his life and shows how he grows through the process. The style Johnson used for creating this illustrations was a very realistic style, considering the book is a biography and informational. Towards the end of the book, the author had to somehow address the issue of death, which is hard for children to grasp. I think Cohn does a great job of preciously addressing this issue briefly then elaborating on it saying what happened afterwards such as the funeral prosession and how people lined the streets with disbelief.
I would give this book a 5 out of 5 stars because it was very informational and fun to read plus the illustrations were very interesting to look at while you read the book. This would be a great book to include in a lesson plan because Abraham Lincoln was a very iconic person and children need to learn a lot about him and what he did for America. I would say this book would be a reading level of about 3rd grade because there is alot of words and some vocabulary that would be suitable for a 3rd grade reading level and might be a challenge for 2nd graders.

This biography of Abraham Lincoln gives the perfect amount of information to the reader throughout Lincoln's life. It starts when he is a baby, and young child living in Kentucky, and moves throughout his older years moving to Illinois and finally to becoming the 16th president. It covers his time writing the Emancipation Proclamation and then into his last few years of life. I like this book because it doesn't overwhelm the reader with factual evidence, it gives just enough to inform us about Lincoln's most important moments. I also love that at the back of the book there is a timeline of his life-- from birth to death.

" A surprisingly moving introduction to Abraham Lincoln's life. The short text still communicates Lincoln's humor, work ethic, and beliefs. " said.

"Ah, yes. We’ve been through this before.

In fact, we’ve been through it eleven times. Hmmm.

I’ll rank all of the Lincoln biographies in just a second, but first I wanted to note one or two things regarding this particular biography. Although it didn’t seem to convey all that much information – facts regarding Lincoln’s family life and career are included, though not in detail – what it did recount was told in a fun, almost “tall tale-y” tone.

I also appreciated this paragraph –


A powerful hard task lay ahead. The United States weren’t united anymore. Some in the southern states disagreed so strongly with how much say-so the federal government should have, they formed their own country. They were concerned particularly with the right to keep slaves.”

- which gave room for the weight of both States’ Rights and slavery in the conflict which became the War Between the States.
