A little boy has a neighbor who looks just like Abraham Lincoln. He loves everything about Lincoln, and so does the boy.

This is a very charming story.

A great read-aloud for President's Day in early elementary classrooms.

Recommends it for: Abrham Lincoln fanfic completists.
This book flummoxed the heck out of me. A neighborhood man looks suspiciously like Abraham Lincoln. He is convinced to appear at the local school dressed as Abraham Lincoln. He then abruptly moves away, to be replaced by a man who looks suspiciously like George Washington. Wah? There's a wonderful, mind-blowing, time-traveling conspiracy theory of a story here, but it happens beyond the pages of this book.
