Our Abe Lincoln (Picture Book)

Released January 2009

Reviewed by Deb Fowler

The school is getting ready for an extravaganza! The children are getting ready behind the curtain, while parents and friends are seated in the audience anxiously awaiting an evening of fun. Two children in front of the curtain are putting up a sign that says “OUR ABE LINCOLN” as the piano player readies her music.

True Abe Lincoln was Praised for his honesty

Praised for his honesty

Praised for his honesty

True Abe Lincoln was praised for his honesty

Many good deeds ago.

Jim Aylesworth cleverly wrote an abbreviated biography of Abraham Lincoln which can be sung to the old classic tune, “The Old Grey Mare.” The original song, accompanied by the music and lyrics, is printed on the end pages. The song is simple (three chords) and lively. This book can make learning history though song a lot of fun! The illustrations are very appealing. Under the author’s note in the back he gives more biographical information. If you would care to make Mary Todd Lincoln’s Vanilla Almond Cake the recipe is on the back cover. Yum!
