Abe Lincoln : the boy who loved books by Kay Winters( Book )

7 editions published between 2002 and 2008 in English and held by 1,520 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The story of how a boy who loved to read changed the world forever." This is a captivating book, written in what seems to me to be free verse. I would say it is suitable for all elementary grades, to be read to the younger students and read by the older ones. Its emphasis lies in Abe Lincoln's childhood. He doesn't study law until page 34 out of 37, and he's elected the 16th President on page 36. Children will learn about young Abe's family life, the death of his mother, his father's remarriage, and about Abe pulling corn in a friend's field for 3 days to pay him back for ruining a book he had borrowed. The illustrations are wonderful, rendered in oil paint on canvas. This is the best elementary-level book about Abraham Lincoln I've experienced. Amazon
