Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
For young readers Bauer has created a very simple biography of one of our most famous presidents—Abraham Lincoln. Readers learn that he was born in a log cabin and had very little formal education, but he learned to read and obviously had a thirst for knowledge. He read enough that he became a lawyer without going to law school. He was appalled by slavery and also felt strongly that the United States should remain united and thus ran for the presidency. The Civil War raged during his presidency and when it was finally over both sides had lost many men and areas of the south suffered greatly. Lincoln is best known for signing the Emancipation Proclamation and for the Gettysburg Address. No mention is made of his family or his assassination. Part of the "My First Biography" series. Reviewer: Marilyn Courtot
