An illustrated biography of Abraham Lincoln; tactfully stops reporting prior to the assassination, and so is safe for sensitive children to read. ( )

Beautiful illustrations, American themed. Raccoons and bears and opossums galore. ( )

This children's book was a winner of the Caldicott Medal in 1940. I read this as a child in grade school. The "look inside" feature at Amazon reveals several of the pages, with their unique style of illustrations. I see that the text offers a saccharine view of young Abe and his upbringing, as one would expect. How interesting that it is still available, ~85+ years after the original printing. ( )
