A Picture Book of Abraham Lincoln

Title: A Picture Book of Abraham Lincoln

Bibliographic information: Adler, D. (1989). A Picture Book of Abraham Lincoln. New York: Holiday House

Brief annotation: This book is a biography of Abraham Lincoln. It follows his life from childhood, through his presidency, to his assassination.

Genre: Non-fiction

Grade: Kindergarten – 3rd

Readers who will like this: Readers who are interested in the presidents will like this book. This series would also be good for a unit on the presidents.

Rating: 4 – I really enjoyed that this book. I loved that it had factual information in a concise, easy-to-understand way. Also, being that this is an audio book, students can start out by reading along with the recording and work up to reading alone. This is a good option for a developing reader.

Questions: Who was Abraham Lincoln?

Learning strategy: I chose the collaborative books activity. Students, in small groups, will choose a president and write their own book like this one.
