Mr. Lincoln's Whiskers by Karen B. Winnick, Boyds Mills Press Staff

Abraham Lincoln was the first president of the United States to wear a beard. What gave him the idea to grow whiskers may have been a letter he received from an eleven-year-old girl named Grace Bedell. Charmingly told by Karen B. Winnick and illustrated with rich oil paintings that capture the look and feel of nineteenth-century America, here is the true story of the girl whose letter helped to make Abraham Lincoln's face one of the most famous in American history.

This book offers enough facts to introduce Grace Bedell and inform children who she was and how she played a major role in Mr. Lincoln's life. A great story of how a young woman influenced a part of American History.

I read this book to children grade one through six. They all loved it and found it very interesting! I am buying another copy!
