" Great biography about Abraham Lincoln. I especially loved the ending that will really resonate with readers and lead to great discussion. " said.

" Another "timepiece" children's picture book! Did I mention that I love these types of books?! =)This was a good description of President Lincoln's life. It has good stories and pictures, as well... " said.

" An informational picture book on Abraham Lincoln, that describes a little bit about each stage in his life from crib to casket. The wording was written in that awkward backwoods way, which took away from the story a bit. Some of the vocabulary words were a little challenging for this books target audience as well, some clarification would have been helpful. " said.

" I read this to third grade yesterday. From the look of the layout and illustrations (ink and watercolor washes) I sure thought this was a much older book than it is. Looks to be early 1900's but actually 2002! The illustrations were nice, done in pale colors, and well-written. I would not suggest the book for students younger than third grade. The book covers Lincoln's life from birth through death and his memorial in Washington, D.C. " said.

" So beautiful. This telling still has new stories, new elements. For example, his hands were sore signing the Emancipation Proclamation because of all the New Year's Day callers the day before. They called Ulysses S. Grant "Unconditional Surrender" Grant. The war ended a year from the time he was appointed. The last page is a picture of the Lincoln monument, "He looks like a giant, doesn't he? He was." So great. " said.

" Begins with Lincoln's birth and ends with an illustration of the Lincoln Memorial in Washington, DC. Language attempts to bring the reader back to Lincoln's time and place. Shows the turmoil he felt as he led the nation during the Civil War and the ways he attempted to lighten the mood and bring laughter to those around him. Full page illustrations, ink and watercolor washes show Lincoln as he grows up. Additional resource: important dates from Lincoln's life. " said.

"I enjoyed this book. I really liked how it began by pointing out that Abraham Lincoln is the man on the penny. I think for younger elementary students (1-3 grade) this peaks their attention because they can relate. This book could be used in a social studies unit about Abraham Lincoln, or in a project where students research presidents and share their findings. At my elementary school we did a "wax museum" project where students researched famous people (such as presidents) and dressed up like them and stood around the school with a "button" in which parents teachers and other students could come around and press the "button" and you would tell them about who you were and what you learned. This book would be great for a project such as this because it is a simple read with a good amount of information and illustrations to keep young students engaged. " said.

"I really enjoyed this non-fiction children's history book on Abraham Lincoln. It has a very interesting and intriguing format because of the personal quotes and the rhyming format found through the book. The illustrations in the book depict Abraham's emotions and the setting perfectly and add to the story. The book discusses his life from the day he was born to the day he was assassinated. It tells stories about his life growing up, his journey to join the senate, and become president of the United States. At the end of the book the author talks about how people praise Abraham Lincoln for the work he did as president and references the memorial made for him in Washington D.C.. I would use this book in my classroom as a read aloud close to Abraham Lincoln's birthday to teach the students about how times have changed and the impact Abraham Lincoln had on our country. " said.
