Biographical Picture Book
This book was about Abraham Lincolns life, starting from when he was born. He was always tall and lanky, even from birth. He was born in KY but moved to IN where he cut down trees to help build things for his family. He did not have much education. Lincoln began reading and read as much as he could about whatever he could. He became state legislature in Illinois, got married, and became president. The last part talks about the Emmancipation Proclomation and his death. This book goes through his life very fast but is good for kids because it gives an overview rather than a lot of detail they won't remember. The illustartions were excelletn and vivid with color. They depicted what was in the text and showed some interesting views of Lincoln.
