    My Best Friend, Abe Lincoln

    My Best Friend, Abe Lincoln is a fictional tale that shows young readers what life was like in the time of Abe Lincoln. The main character is a young boy by the name of Sam Harding. Like many at that time, Sam's family are poor, hardworking farmers.

    Sam meets Abe in school. Abe's family are farmers as well. Abe is an excellent student. He loves to read and study, showing even early on some of the attributes that would someday make him the man he'd become.

    A great introduction for middle graders not only to Abe Lincoln but also to how children lived in his time.

    Bringing History Home

    MY BEST FRIEND, ABE LINCOLN: A TALE OF TWO BOYS FROM INDIANA is a welcome addition to books children and young readers. Author Robert I. Bloch has a family connection with the career of Abraham Lincoln and comes to this story with a dual purpose - to continue that connection with history and to present history to children in a manner that makes it accessible and appealing.

    Sam Harding is a young lad who lives in Indiana on a rather meager farm but with a loving family. When Sam goes to the small grade school he meets a tall, skinny boy recently moved from Kentucky - a quiet but very bright lad by the name of Abe Lincoln. Sam and Abe become fast friends, playing with the Indians in a neighboring tribe, fishing, etc. Abe grows rapidly and becomes admired for his ability to relate to others by his funny stories and spends all of his spare time reading and learning. Sam and Abe witness slavery and both are disturbed that white men can buy black families to work for them for nothing. They share many like beliefs and good times until Sam and his family lose their farm and are forced to move away, and in time Sam realizes that his dear friend Abe has become an important leader, abolishing slavery and becoming President of the United States.

    While there is nothing new about the facts in this story, it is the manner in which Bloch relates it that makes it so accessible to young minds: storybooks about people with whom they can relate are one of the strongest bastions for learning in young children. The book is beautifully illustrated by celebrated illustrator John W. Ewing who has been responsible for many of the Walt Disney projects. This is a strong, well-made book that deserves a reserved area on the bookshelves of children (and adults) who care about coupling learning with entertainment.
