I am excited to put this book on my library shelf, and I know that it is going to be popular with my elementary students.” —Soline Holmes, Librarian at Academy of the Sacred Heart
“One thing that really impressed me about this installment in the youth biography series is the thought that went into the Think Tank questions. Throughout the book, at least once per chapter, a Think Tank question encourages critical, creative, and empathetic thinking from the reader. This is an amazing tool to help children to engage with the text beyond the words on the page!” —Jen K.
“Excellent book on our 16th president. It is colorful and easy to read. The biography is loaded with information about his life, his family, and his presidency. I would recommend this book both for children and for adults who want to learn more about Mr. Lincoln and his impact on American history.” —S. Strelecki
