Abraham Lincoln loved books. He loved to learn. He loved writing. He also worked hard and appreciated life. He was an honest and great man. He was born in a log cabin in the woods and grew up to be the 16th President of the United States because he studied, worked hard and read BOOKS! This book follows Abraham Lincoln’s life from when he was an infant to 16th president and tells the reader how important reading and books were to his life. Why I liked this book – First of all, I LOVE to read about Abraham Lincoln. He had an interesting and inspiring life. I am sad that he was assassinated. Second, I really like Kay Winters’ writing style. This story of hers is written in free verse. I have read several of her books and they are all kid-friendly, well-written, and interesting! I like how Ms. Winters tells about the importance of books in Lincoln’s life and how they changed his life! Thirdly, I really like the illustrations in the book, they look like paintings.
