Looking at Lincoln is about a girl who sees a man in the streets that looked like someone familiar and then she realizes that he looked like Abraham Lincoln! She goes to the library to learn more about our sixteenth president. This book uses two different fonts. One font seems typed up and those sentences talk about Lincoln and give facts about him and his life. The other font looks like a kid wrote it, and those sentences spoke about Lincoln through the point of view of a kid, it made assumptions about his life like when he was elected, she "bet Mary made his favorite vanilla cake." It also asked a lot of questions about his life that all the books about Lincoln didn't answer. ( )

I loved this book for determining importance. The books is filled with facts about Lincoln but also with frivolous thoughts as well. Students will be able to decide what is important to know about Lincoln from the story versus what might be speculations or opinions. This book is also great because facts are printed clearly while speculations are printed in script font...thus giving the students visual cues.

Through simplified text and vibrant illustrations, the life of Abraham Lincoln is explored. One day, a girl sees a man who reminds her of Abraham Lincoln and goes to the library to find out more about the 16th president. During her investigation, she finds information about Lincoln’s family life, his education, how he dressed, his presidency, and his death. This text can connect to historical instruction by both focusing on the events during Lincoln's presidency and how the abolition of slavery did not necessarily mean that everyone would be treated equal. Due to it's vibrant colors and simplified history, this book is likely intended for 1st to 3rd graders. Personally, I enjoyed how this book began with a child making a connection to her school and personal life because it shows students how the things learned in school are relevant in the real world and/or connect to each other.
