Lincoln: A Photobiography by Russell Freedman

Chrissy, resident children’s book expert, here!  I really felt I got to know Lincoln through this Newbery award winning book!  Lincoln, whose birthday was this month (Feb. 12th), was a humble, witty, talkative man with changeable features.  He was also striking at nearly 6’-4” and one of the most photographed men of his time.  This book includes a lot of interesting facts about Lincoln’s personal life, like that he was messy and spoiled his children.  Lincoln was the 16th president of the United States, and is known as, “The Great Emancipator”, the man who helped to abolish slavery.  He is my favorite president, an interesting historical figure worth learning about.  Recommended for 10+!

Thanks for the review Chrissy!

Have a quite regal day!
