by Janis Herbert

This attractive biographical guide offers a good mixture of information, anecdotes, and activities, balancing facts about Lincoln's personal and family life with the record of his accomplishments as president and a broader view of his times. Similar in format and concept to Brandon Marie Miller's George Washington for Kids: His Life and Times with 21 Activities, this wide-format book deals with serious issues such as Lincoln's controversial suspension of the writ of habeas corpus even as it offers activities such as "Draw a Political Cartoon" and "Hold a Debate." The broad, glossy pages ensure plenty of space and good reproduction quality for the many illustrations, including period photographs, paintings, and prints as well as modern photos of Lincoln-associated sites. A bibliography and well-annotated lists of places to visit, in person or online, are appended. A good resource for young people with interest in the man and his time or an assignment related to Lincoln.
