Customer Reviews5.0 / 5.01 ReviewWe were first introduced the the d'Aulaire's book about Abraham Lincoln in the hospital emergency waiting room as we were waiting to get stitches on my son's forehead My husband began reading the book aloud but our name was called halfway through When my son heard that we had to leave the book behind he held back a fresh burst of tears My husband quickly promised that we would order that very book as soon as we got home Butit was out of print!!! We did manage to obtain a copy and we discovered that there were others by the same couple A year or so later I was delighted to see them come back into print available through Rainbow We've since purchased Columbus and George Washington and we plan to continue adding to our collection The first thing one notices about the books is the breathtaking full-page illustrations The books are written in narrative form with many stories details and events that appeal to children They include information about the subject's childhood family accomplishments strengths and weaknesses I have learned a lot reading them to my kids! The stories are 'living' so they really stick with my kids and me I know one thing for sure we'll never forget that Abraham Lincoln had white scar over his eyebrow after fighting off pirates just as my son now has a scar above his eyebrow!September 13, 2012
