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. ( )

Abe Lincoln's Hat tells the story of his rise to presidency, and of course his famous attire. The book begins with Abe Lincoln buying his hat and goes on to explain how he uses it. Lincoln begins to use his hat to hold letters from people, and from these letters helps people in court. He begins his rise to fame through these court battles, and his stance on slavery. In the end we see Lincoln get elected president. This book shows a presidents rise to fame and incorporates a bit of humor through his attire.

Summary- This book is about Abe Lincoln and his journey in becoming the President of the United States. It tells of different stories about how Mr. Lincoln kept important papers in his top hat and also everything that he has been through with his top hat.

Personal Reaction- I thought this was a very cute book and that it portrayed Abe Lincoln very well. I also thought that it was very informative especially for children who may not know all of Abe Lincoln's qualities as a person.

Classroom extension ideas-
1) Construct a craft so that kids can make and wear a top hat.
2) All write a submission about Abe Lincoln.

this book is about how young Abe Lincoln became president and how the hat started it all for him. all of the stories in the book are based on true events. The hat was the most important thing that Abe owned because it made him remember the letters that he had to write back to his customers. he would stick them in the hat, and when we took the hat off, he would remember.
