Abe Lincoln The Boy Who Loved Books
By Kay Winters
Illustrator Nancy Carpenter
Publisher Simon and Schuster Books for Young Readers

This story of Abraham Lincoln focuses on his childhood, the hardships he faced, and his love of reading and learning. The right ideas, expressed by the right words are powerful tools. Warm colorful illustrations, which often include the bright yellow and orange of a fire, reinforce the idea that reading books can light a fire in a child. The final picture shows Lincoln in the White House reading a book by a roaring fire, demonstrating that the fire to learn, lit early and pursued in all circumstances, continues to burn throughout Lincoln's life.

Abraham Lincoln -
born in a log cabin,
child of the frontier,
head in a book -
elected our sixteenth president!
From the wilderness
to the White House.
He learned the power of words
and use them well.
