Description
Here is the perfect book for celebrating Lincoln's 200th birthday--and a unique way to illuminate our 16th president for today's young readers. Based on an actual incident that occurred when Lincoln was just a boy, it shows that he, like so many children, wished he were taller (and it came true!); that he had a mischievous streak; that he loved words; and--most important--that even as a small child he puzzled deeply over the concept of freedom. Amy June Bates's superb illustrations capture young Abe's personality, the warmth of his home life, and the enduring power of his one-time chance meeting with a soldier from the War of 1812.
