Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In this extraordinarily tender, humorous, and lyrical look at young Abe Lincoln, Kay Winters introduces us to a boy who, despite heartbreaking hard times, never lost his passion for storytelling and learning. Whether he traced letters in dust, walked miles to return a book just so he could borrow a new one, or kept a book in his back pocket while he did his chores, young Abe always yearned to learn something new.

Abraham Lincoln grew up to be the sixteenth president of the United States. He loved books. They changed his life. He changed the world.
