More About This Book

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 3-6-Noted author Andrea Davis Pinkney, celebrated for her award-winning picture book biographies, offers a well-researched work of historical fiction for intermediate-aged listeners (Winslow, 2001). Told in the manner of such first-person narratives as Dear America and My Name Is America series, the Dear Mr. President series presents fictional correspondence between a young person and a President of the United States. Pinkney focuses on the years 1861-1863, relating the communication between 12-year-old slave girl Lettie Tucker and Abraham Lincoln. The audio presentation features George Guidall, Tom Stechshult, and SiSi Johnson. The production begins and ends with a narrative reading of background information, while the text of the fictional letters are spoken by actors portraying Lincoln and Tucker. Lettie shares domestic details of her life on a tobacco plantation, where she is secretly taught to read and write by her master's sympathetic daughter. Lincoln replies, explaining the causes and events of the Civil War, as well as personal elements of his family life. Lettie's reflections on the morality of slave ownership cause Lincoln to reassess his actions and beliefs. Pinkney provides a stately voice for Lincoln, using vocabulary such as ameliorate, sobriquet, and precipice which may perplex youngsters. Lettie's strong voice, combining knowledgeable opinions with a slight southern slave dialect, may persuade readers that they are truly hearing the words of a once-living person. There's no explicit statement on the packaging that this is a work of fiction. Librarians must let listeners know that the letters are not authentic and shelve it as fiction. Youngsters will learn much about the historical period from the introduction describing the beginnings of the Civil War and the biographical endnotes on Lincoln. The print edition will extend appreciation of the audio performance with its photographs, maps, and timelines.-Mary Burkey, Grandview Heights City Schools, OH Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.
