This is an interesting book about Lincoln told from the point of view of a young girl who admires him. It is an interesting way of presenting the book because usually other books about Lincoln are just facts stated by a narrator. I will share this even with younger readers because of the colorful pictures and the tone of the book. ( )

I like her columns for the NY Times website a lot, and this is adapted from them. It doesn't quite work for me as a children's book. ( )

I love this book. It is so personal a love letter to Lincoln, so fresh, so humanizing, showing such consideration for a young audience. Good, readable notes at the back, plus sources. I love the line of eyesight on the cover and the last spread, inviting us to look at Lincoln, but also with Lincoln clearly looking back. What does he see in us, today? ( )

This seemed to be a very accurate story of Abraham Lincoln. His story is told by a little boy who wanted to know who was on the $5 bill. It's tells Abe's life in a way that is appropriate for young children to understand. I would read this book around Presidents Day to elementary and middle school children. ( )
