Description - Abraham Lincoln for Kids by Janis Herbert

2008 National Parenting Publications Awards (NAPPA) Honors Award winner. Providing a fresh perspective on one of the most beloved presidents of all time, this illuminating activity book tells the rich story of Abraham Lincoln's life and details the events of his era. Highlighting Lincoln's warm, generous spirit and impressive intellect, the guide teaches children about his fascinating life story, his struggles at the onset of the Civil War, and his relevance in today's world. Activities include delivering a speech, holding a debate, drawing political cartoons, and making a stovepipe hat or miniature Mississippi River flatboat. Lively sidebars, abundant photographs and illustrations, and fun projects help to kick the dust off old Honest Abe. Selections from some of Lincoln's most famous speeches and documents, as well as a resource section of websites to explore and sites to visit, are also included, making this a comprehensive Lincoln biography for young readers.
