In this version of a biography of Abraham Lincoln, it focuses more on his life broadly, and less on his childhood like the other book did. It was very informative and gave much more detail than the other one. It added his experiences of seeing enslaved people, which was very crucial to his career. I enjoyed this biography more than the last. ( )

This book is based on the life and presidency of Abraham Lincoln, the 16th President of the United States. ( )

This was a book about Abraham Lincoln and his upbringing where he lived in a cabin in Kentucky and then Indiana with his sister and mom and dad. His mom died when he was 9 years old and his father got remarried a year later. Then he moved to Illinois at the of 21 and helped his father build a new house and plant corn. When he traveled to New Orleans he saw a slave market for the first time and saw it was miserable. When Abraham started to study law, he became a lawyer and served in the Illinois legislature. He fell in love and got married in 1942 to Mary Todd and had four sons. Abraham later became present and many did not like that he was against slavery and later wrote the Emancipation Proclamation which declared all slaves in the Confederate states free. He was then shot at a theater by an actor John Wilkes Booth who favored the south.
This was a very short story about a former president whom most people called "Honest Abe". The pictures in this book were very illustrative of the story. I really liked how the author made this biography about Abraham and gave a quick synopsis of his life.
I would extend this book giving more information about his four children and his wife. Tell about what they did, how old they were and if his wife Mary did anything or was she a housewife who raised the children. I already knew most of the things about Abraham Lincoln but it was good to re-read what I already knew since it has been a long time since I have heard about him. I would also extend the book by telling how him and his wife met. The book did not relay any of that information and it would be interesting to know how she felt about slavery and if she worked or had any particular ambitions.

As teachers, I want my future students to know who all the important presidents are and the great things they have done to the country. I like this book because it does a wonderful job at providing important information about Abraham Lincoln while also using small potions of words on the page, and easy vocabulary. The one thing I did not like about the book was the picture of John Wilkes Booth shooting Abraham Lincoln. Not that I think children shouldn't know that he was killed, but I don't think the illustrator needed to incorporate the picture. Other than that, I really would recommend this book to your future students. My favorite part of the book was when the author talked about how Abraham Lincoln freed the slaves and ended the war between the north and the south. This concept is an important concept to understand as a U.S. citizen and the author informed readers using easy to understand language. For young children, the illustrations in this book are fun do to detail in the pictures and the amount of action going on in all the pictures. ( )

Overall, although very simplified, this book is a great biography book for any young reader. I liked how simplified the writing was. The book was written in a way that is easy for kids to read and comprehend. Another reason I liked the book is because of the illustrations. They too help with comprehension as they are matched perfectly to the text on the page. For example, when the text spoke on Lincoln's re-election, which may be a new word for some readers, the illustrations show a celebration of his winning which would reinforce the definition of re-election. The organization of the book is also something I noticed and liked. The book literally goes in order, including specific dates, of Lincoln's life from birth until death. Although it does leave out some important aspects but its best they are left out because who the intended audience is. Nonetheless, a truly good book. The main message of a simple informational biography on America's sixteenth president, Abraham Lincoln is definitely executed well. ( )
