This story is about the Gettysburg Address, and Abraham Lincoln’s view on it. I liked this book because I like history. The reading levels for this book are for grades first through third.

This book is a great book about the civil war and how president lincoln handled it. It also talks about his home life giving great inside as to what he was thinking. I would read this book to 2-5 grade and have the 4 and 5th graders read it on their own, when talking about the civil war. ( )

This book is talking about the story of Gettyburg Addewss, and what Mr. Lincoln did during the civil war to make the country united. I would use this book in my teaching, because this is really a good book for kids to learn about Mr. Lincoln. This book is good for 2nd-3rt readers to read. ( )

This book could be used an independent read for second through fourth graders. This book is readable for these grade levels and puts this part of Lincoln's life in an understandable and interesting way. It add a lot of different interesting facts to bring Lincoln to be relatable. This book takes a small part of the life and presidency of Lincoln, but gives a good picture of who Lincoln is and the impact he had. The students can read and understand the book. This book can be used for a reference about Lincoln. It could be used as a research book for a paper about Lincoln. Since the book narrows on a specific part the students are able to get details about his life and understand Lincoln as a person. The book also used rhetorical questions to relay information and keep it interesting. The students could learn about rhetorical questions and the purposes of using them as well as other figurative language.
