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.
