Overview

Abraham Lincoln grew up poor and without schooling in a Kentucky wilderness and lost his mother before he was ten. It was sparkplug Sally Bush Johnston who married his father, brought a library of books to their log cabin home, and believed in Abe from the beginning. She was an inspiring turning point for young Abe, who went on to become America?s sixteenth and most popular and respected president.

A spirited introduction to the great American for young readers and a glimpse of how any human can rise to surprising heights.

Praise

“Fast-paced. . . . Children accustomed to typically staid photographs of Lincoln will laugh out loud seeing him depicted as a squalling baby and a young boy riding a pet pig.”—School Library Journal
