This short chapter book is a biography on Abraham Lincoln. The books briefly covers Abraham'a childhood into Adulthood. The books talks about his time as President during the Civil War. The book ends with covering his death. The books is an easy read for 2nd-3rd graders. I believe it could also be introduced during first grade, but only certain pages should be read since it is a chapter book. I do feel that the book's use of real pictures and paintings/drawings did a good job of keeping the reader's attention. The book was not overly detailed in the information which I believe will help students stay focused during the reading. Overall a very good book to use during an introduction to biographies. During the reading, I would have a side conversation about Abraham's near drowning that is mentioned on page 6. The book mentions that Abraham's store failed on page 17. At this point I might ask the students why they believes the store failed. On page 23 Abraham's stance on slavery is mentioned. I would ask the students to think about his stance and what it meant to feel this way during the 1800s. We would also talk about how quickly the war was started after Abraham became president. I would do a side reading of a speech given by Abraham that is mentioned on page 35. This would be a great book to introduce a biography to a 2nd or 3rd grade class. With the basic writing style and precise information, the students could use this book as an example to refer to during their own creation of a biography on a choose person.
