Photographs and text trace the life of the Civil War President.

Publishers Description

Abraham Lincoln stood out in a crowd as much for his wit and rollicking humor as for his height. This Newbery Medal-winning biography of our Civil War president is warm, appealing, and illustrated with dozens of carefully chosen photographs and prints.

Russell Freedman begins with a lively account of Abraham Lincoln's boyhood, his career as a country lawyer, and his courtship and marriage to Mary Todd. Then the author focuses on the presidential years (1861 to 1865), skillfullly explaining the many complex issues Lincoln grappled with as he led a deeply divided nation through the Civil War. The book's final chapter is a moving account of that tragic evening in Ford's Theatre on April 14, 1865. Concludes with a sampling of Lincoln writings and a detailed list of Lincoln historical sites.

This title has been selected as a Common Core Text Exemplar (Grades 2-3, Read Aloud Informational Text).

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Great book for parents too  Apr 14, 2008
My husband and I were reading this book over each other's shoulders. The book is so well written that you get a feeling that you now know Lincoln after you are done reading. The author fleshed out who Lincoln was and how he became this extremely famous president. I liked that the author wrote about the war and surrounding events so we could see how they affected Lincoln and vice versa. One note, the soft cover edition is falling apart even after one reading... get a big rubber band to go with the book! But don't let that dissuade you from buying this book.
great content poor construction  Jul 4, 2007
This is a great book for young readers however, be advised I had to order it twice because the pages were falling out of the first book. There is a problem with the glue used in the binding process. The second book arrived and the same problem occured. Because the book was required summer reading for my son who is going into 8th grade, I went to kinkos and spent another $10.00 to have it re-bound. Good luck!
Deserving of the Newbery  Apr 19, 2007
This biography on Abraham Lincoln is balanced perfectly, a great blend of basic information and detailed facts, without ever becoming irrelevant or too deep. Photographs enhance this effect, including a page that shows the effects of age on Lincoln's face throughout his presidency, and historical artifacts like posters and handwriting samples. This is the perfect Lincoln primer for someone just starting research, or for a middle school student with an assignment.
A fascinating presentation on President Lincoln  Jan 10, 2007
I'm sure that there are plenty of biographies out there on President Lincoln, but I have not seen any that give us as good a kid-friendly view on him until this one. The photos add an unparalleled personality that draws in the reader, and they truly are beautiful. The book presents a great summary of Lincoln's life and-- most impressively-- even tackles some of the darker moments, as is approriate for the target elementary/middle school audience. It is informatve and an easy, educational read that should prove great for research.
Great history book and great biography book  Sep 12, 2005
This medium-sized illustrated book on the life of Abraham Lincoln covers the private and public life of one of America's greatest presidents. The book gives good balance to the different stages of Lincoln's life; including his youth, childhood education, teenage years, early days as a country lawyer, entrance into local politics, his marriage, and finally his rise to the presidency and his death. The book does not concentrate on the Civil War, but instead gives a full picture of the man, including his personal traits such as love of storytelling, good humor, and ability to win over people given enough time. Overall, a great book for students in middle school or early high school.
