Ana's Picture Books of the Week

We are enjoying two new and fun books we found at our library on Abe Lincoln! A good way to help celebrate President's Day!

Abe Lincoln Crosses a Creek by Deborah Hopkinson and John Hendrix

Little is known about Lincoln's playmate and the event told in this darling book. I liked the perspective the author and illustrator take to retell the tall, thin tale...!

Abe's Honest Words, the life of Abraham Lincoln by Doreen Rappaport and Kadir Nelson

Lincoln's depth of thought, integrity and faith comes alive in this gorgeous book. The illustrations, fonts and innovative approach in presenting his life to young readers make this book a gem! For one, the cover is the picture of his face-- the title is on the back cover!
