Children's Literature
As the Presidents' Day holiday approaches every February and kids are off school for a long weekend, many of them do not understand what this holiday is all about. This book about Abraham Lincoln and George Washington serves as an independent reader or an introductory read-aloud for young kids to learn about two of America's greatest heroes. The text is in a large font size and there are no more than four sentences per page. Wonderful historic artwork depicts the men and their times as they fought to unite our country as a whole. Basic background history on these presidents' bravery, courage and achievements will help kids to begin to appreciate the significance of the holiday. There is a "Words You Know" glossary with illustrations and an index to conclude the holiday book. It is part of the "Rookie Read-About Holidays" series. 2002, Scholastic/Children's Press, Caudill
