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.

    Terrific Non-fiction Intro to Abe Lincoln

    I like this book a lot. The text is straight forward and concise yet gets a fair amount of information in about President Lincoln. I like the details from his young life about working hard and reading all of the time in order to teach himself, as he often missed school to work on the farm. I like the themes of hard work, chasing a dream, and perseverance. I also like the theme of doing the right thing re: slavery.

    The pictures are my favorite. They are vibrant and detailed. Illustrator, Ms. Goulet Dubois, uses several textures and several shades/tones in her paintings. There is a picture that shows an African American family on a riverboat with shackles on their ankles. This same family is later depicted as free. I liked this detail a lot and it is something young kids would be able to understand. It's powerful but not done in a way that would upset very young children, though.

    The faces are also beautifully done. I think that Abraham Lincoln can be a difficult person to depict in paintings. However, I really liked the illustrations of him in this book. The illustrator was able to depict several of his personality traits through her illustrations. I admire an artist who can show so much in facial structure/expressions.

    Anyway, as a teacher, I think this one is a winner. It is a book that creates an excellent framework for the important events of Lincoln’s life and presidency. It’s also a good launching point to delve into more details with older children. I like this My First Biography series from Scholastic—and I like this author/illustrator team very much. Will keep buying them!
