Although I'm not sure why the illustrations of adult Abe make him look like he has typhus, this is a right fine book. Having grown up on one of the three states that claims the dear departed president, Lincoln is one of those Historical Personages I've heard a lot about. To have his life here presented so succinctly is delightful. I also love the imaginary friend squirrel, a plot device used in several of the ValueTales books.

This is one of her favorites in the series especially for younger kids. My five-year-old loves that he lived in a log cabin of just one room and that as he read he would take notes with charcoal on pieces of wood because he didn't have paper.

We learned that if you respect others they will respect you.

My boys absolutely loved this book, and I have to agree with them. The story excellently demonstrated the idea of respect by using examples from Lincoln's life. The book was not preachy nor was it condescending... it just very gently got the point across. We don't own this, but I think I'm going to have to add it to our shelves, and I'm excited to read more from this series.

This biography begins "Once upon a time" and introduces Lincoln's friend the squirrel. Tells story of Lincoln's life leading up to the presidency. Caricature/cartoon style illustrations. Apparently Lincoln becomes very tired in 1860, that is when large shadows appear below his eyes. Full page essay of historical facts at end of story.
