When I read this book, I was at the end of a Lincoln streak, during which I read at least 20 chapter books about Lincoln. I had also visited the Lincoln Library in Springfield, Illinois (great place!!!). I found this book boring, even though it was very well written and contained lots of interesting facts. One thing that made me laugh later is that I saw this book is available on CD; a PHOTObiography on CD doesn’t seem right. Lincoln was one of our most interesting presidents, so kids should read at least one book about him. If they read this first they might like it more than I did.
Rating: * (I had had too much Lincoln)
