Here is the perfect book for celebrating Lincoln s 200th birthdayand a unique way to illuminate our 16th president for today s young readers. Based on an actual incident that occurred when Lincoln was just a boy, it shows that he, like so many children, wished he were taller (and it came true!); that he had a mischievous streak; that he loved words; andmost importantthat even as a small child he puzzled deeply over the concept of freedom. Amy June Bates s superb illustrations capture young Abe s personality, the warmth of his home life, and the enduring power of his one-time chance meeting with a soldier from the War of 1812."
