Criticas
Gr 1-4-This brief biography of the sixteenth president emphasizes Lincoln's hard-working, rural background, his curiosity and keenness to learn, and his hatred of slavery. The text evokes the warmth and closeness of his early family life, particularly the devotion of his sister Sarah and the experiences that contributed to his understanding of the evil embodied in slavery. It is accompanied by full-color, realistic illustrations. In a few pages, Black covers Lincoln's presidency, accentuating the Civil War, the Emancipation Proclamation (not named in the text), and the Gettysburg Address. Oddly, though, she fails to mention Lincoln's assassination. This is a smoothly translated and appropriately down-to-earth introduction to the man many consider to be our greatest president. T. M. Usel's Abraham Lincoln (Bridgestone, 1999) contains a good deal more detail and is illustrated with photographs but is aimed at an older audience. Recommended for larger collections.
