Product Description

The 1940 Newbery Honor title, Abraham Lincoln's World sets American history into a world context. Short, beautifully written stories explain what was going on during the years of Abraham Lincoln's birth, childhood, employment as a storekeeper and lawyer, and finally during his years as president. Discover that when Abe Lincoln was a boy romping the woods of Kentucky, Thomas Jefferson was completing his eighth year as president, George III reigned in Great Britain and Napolean was about to meet his Waterloo. By the time Lincoln was old enough to help his father chop wood, Harriet Beecher was reading anything she could get her hands on, Charles Darwin was collecting toads, crabs and shells, and the impoverished boy Dickens was working in a shoe blacking factory in London. Have fun as you learn all about the intersections in history we often don't see! 345 pages, softcover. Ages 9 & up.

    This books gives an amazing overview of the historical events happening around the world -- all during the life of Abraham Lincoln. I've never seen history books like this series. We read it aloud to our early elementary boys, and late elementary children could start to read it themselves. But even adults can/should read these books to gain a deeper knowledge of history than we ever got in school.

    Who was the United States greatest President? Many people would quickly answer, Abraham Lincoln. This 1945 Newbery Honor Title, originally published in 1944, is not just a biography of Lincoln, but an example of author Genevieve Fosters masterful display of horizontal history by telling the story of world events in the geo-political sphere, while giving as much importance to advances in science, medicine, music, literature, and exploration, all centered around the life of a specific individual. After a short introduction about Lincolns background and birth, the five main sections explain what was going on in the world while Abe Lincoln was a boy romping the woods of Kentucky, while he was helping his father chop wood in Indiana, while he was keeping shop in New Salem, while he was a lawyer in Springfield, and while he served as President, with snippets of Lincolns activities woven in.

    Foster once wrote, Nothing is more critical, I believe, than that children growing up in these critical explosive days should be given an understanding of American history as a part of the history of the world. Abraham Lincolns World would serve as an invaluable aid to any students study of the times in which Lincoln lived. And the book makes the information interesting to read because it presents the events in story form instead of a dry, dusty list of facts. The new expanded edition includes additional material provided by the authors daughter, Joanna Foster. Other Newbery Honor Books by Genevieve Foster are George Washingtons World (1942), George Washington (1950), and Birthdays of Freedom, Vol. 1 (1953). Other similar books by the same author include Augustus Caesars World: A Story of Ideas and Events from B.C. 44 to 14 A.D. (1947), The World of Captain John Smith (1959), The World of Columbus and Sons (1965), and The World of William Penn (1973).

    Enjoyable and accurate to read, the author intertwines world history during Lincoln's lifetime. It pulls world history together in a memorable story. I have reread and shared it with many.
