Children will love this lighthearted look at one of the most important figures in American history. Young readers will learn how Abraham (who hated to be called Abe) moved from his birthplace of Kentucky to Indiana, attended school for only a short time, became a lawyer, and eventually became president of the United States. Readers will learn, too, of the loving father who allowed his children's pet goat to sleep at their bedside in the White House. Children will be able to read this biography, which is written at the second-grade level and illustrated in full color, on their own and "Discover Abraham Lincoln" for themselves.
Abraham Lincoln was one of Americas greatest presidents. But he was also the boy who learned how to use an axe at the age of eight, the father of four boys, and the president who saved America. This book is for children of ages 4-8.
