I loved reading this narrative history, and it has deepened my respect and admiration for Abraham Lincoln. Wilbur Fisk Gordy wrote Lincoln’s story in a simple yet interesting and inspiring way that older children and adults alike can appreciate, enjoy, and glean worthwhile lessons from. It’s an excellent and fascinating supplement to anyone’s education of US history.
Written in 1917, Wilbur Gordy’s biography of Abraham Lincoln brings to life one of the great men of history. The biography is not fictionalized; it sticks to factual information and stories, but it is presented in a way that makes history interesting and meaningful. As the book travels through the life of Abraham Lincoln, from boyhood on up, valuable lessons are taught about wisdom, kindness, honesty, hard work, love of learning, and persevering through trials.
The Abraham Lincoln Level 8 Book Study is available to accompany this book.
