Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Naomi Williamson
Abraham Lincoln, one of the most respected presidents of the United States, began his term as president by sneaking into Washington, D.C., in the dead of night for fear of assassination. In this revised edition, Judson fills this simple, but well-written biography of the sixteenth president with facts that will interest readers of American history. Lincoln's own words, in many instances, are used to substantiate the content and add a personal take on this story of his life and occurrences during his political career that impacted the entire country. Pictures and illustrations add visual support to the text. Also included are chapter notes, a chronology of Lincoln's life, a brief glossary, a listing of books for further reading, Internet addresses for websites with information about Lincoln, and an index. A title in the "Americans: The Spirit of a Nation" series, this will be a good addition to any library to support research about Abraham Lincoln. Reviewer: Naomi Williamson
