Timberdoodle's review
Abraham Lincoln Friend of the People

This Newbery Honor Book, from a three-time Newbery Honor author, paints an indelible portrait of the prairie president. Clara Ingram Judson presents Lincoln in all his gauntness, gawkiness, and greatness: a backwoods boy who became President and saved the Union. Judson's careful writing is enlivened by her visits to Lincoln's home and vivid descriptions of the Lincoln family's pioneer life. She reveals the unforgettable story of Abraham Lincoln, from his boyhood and days as a shopkeeper and lawyer, to his first elected offices, his election as president, the Civil War, and assassination.

Abraham Lincoln November 1, 2010
Reviewer: Misty Marr from Buckeye, AZ United States  
Is it time to study Abraham Lincoln?  Set aside your school books for a bit and pull out Abraham Lincoln - Friend of the People.  This is a great book that will introduce your child to one of the best presidents that the US has seen - Abraham Lincoln.  In story form, your family will find this so much more interesting than a text book. Abraham Lincoln - Friend of the People will take your from Abe's childhood, sprinkled with tragedy and poverty, to his youth full of hard work and business adventures to his life as a politician.   Together you can learn the principles that he taught and practiced in his own live.  This is a great series for a great price!
