HomeSchoolBookReview More than 1 year ago
We had read several of the short biographical books for young children by Jean Fritz, such as George Washington's Breakfast; And Then What Happened, Paul Revere?; Where Was Patrick Henry on the 29th of May?; and Will You Sign Here, John Hancock?. Just a Few Words, Mr. Lincoln, an "All Aboard Reading" book for "Station Stop 3," provides a look at the private side of Abraham Lincoln and a summary of the circumstances surrounding his short but memorable address at the dedication of the Gettysburg battlefield cemetery. We found this book for children who are just reading alone at one of the Lincoln sites that we visited in eastern Illinois.
