This can be used to reinforce Famous American units that are being studied in the classroom. Humorous stories help students recall important details more easily.

This book is a humorous look at Abraham Lincoln’s stovepipe hat. While this book does touch briefly on the issue of slavery, it is not a book on Lincoln’s role in abolishing slavery. The book is funny and portrays Lincoln as a fun loving young man. His hat sometimes even serves as a file cabinet for all his papers. ( )

Summary: A biography about Abe Lincoln from when he was a lawyer to when he became President. The story told why he kept notes in his hat, and that he helped a lot of people when he was lawyer.

Personal Reflection: A simple story that told a lot about President Lincoln. I didn't know that he grew his beard because someone said it would make look more distinguished as president.

Classroom Extension:
1. Teach memory making ideas, have each student come up with a way that would remind them of something.

2. In History class, to learn quirky facts about famous people.

I believe this was a good book because it was very kid friendly. If this book was read to children, I think that they would understand everything that Abe Lincoln did before he was president. It is strange to know that one of the best presidents started out as a lawyer and worked his way up to president. ( )

Illus. in full color. Abraham Lincoln, one of our greatest presidents, started out in life as an absent-minded frontier lawyer. How did he nudge his memory? He stuck letters, court notes, contracts, and even his checkbook in his trademark top hat. When he took off his hat, it was all there!
