Publisher's Description

From the inspiring yet straightforward words of Abraham Lincoln, the story of a man who went to school for no more than one year, lost two elections, and then went to lead our nation through the hardest of times, is told. Through speeches, writings, and memoirs, Lincoln offers readers a personal history lesson of his life.

Editorial Reviews

Acclaim for Helen Keller and Abraham Lincoln:

In Their Own Words biographies focus on famous people who left a record of their own lives. Beginning with an explanation of the difference between primary and secondary sources, Sullivan seamlessly interweaves information about his subject with excerpts from primary sources. In the case of Helen Keller, Sullivan uses her autobiographical works; for Lincoln, he draws on speeches and letters. Both Keller and Lincoln have been covered in numerous biographies for young people (Sullivan's own Picturing Lincoln was published last fall), but these volumes are worthwhile. The short chapters, large print, simple vocabulary, straightforward narrative, and attractive illustrations, as well as the addition of the subjects' own words, make them fine choices for early-grade biographies. They fit nicely between David Adler's Picture Book Biography series books and more challenging volumes such as Russell Freedman's classic Lincoln: A Photobiography (1987).
--Booklist


... These may not be unique biographies, but they are still well written, fast moving, and highly readable, squeezed into a small format that should appeal to many students. Both books feature black-and-white photos and reproductions, a useful index, a short bibliography of primary and secondary sources, and a short list of further readings, along with places to contact for further information. Certainly much has been written about how these two figures and many libraries will find their shelves already well stocked. Those needing more materials, however, will find these to be solid choices.
--School Library Journal
