This book was read aloud to my children at night. I learned so much more about Abraham Lincoln. I gained such a deep respect for him as did my children. I also loved that we were immersed in that time period and learned history and culture along the way. Definitely worth reading. I even cried at the end when Abraham Lincoln was assassinated. I knew he was killed,I knew it was coming, but I got so attached to him that I yearned go protect him and prevent his death. A must read!

I originally purchased this to use in a few years for my daughter for high school. I love Abraham Lincoln so much I ended up reading it myself. It kept me engaged and was very well put.
