Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Gr 2-4-As part of the movement to elect Lincoln, Grace's family helps organize a rally in their small New York town. After seeing the candidate's image on a poster, Grace decides to write to him suggesting that he might win more votes if he grew a beard. Lincoln answers the child's letter and she becomes a neighborhood celebrity. When his victory train passes through on its way to Washington, the president singles Grace out as the girl who gave him good advice. Based on a true incident, this short transitional story will satisfy readers of historical fiction. The limited role of women in politics and slaves escaping to Canada provide subplots and background to the story. Some children may need help sorting the family and neighborhood people out in the first chapters, but this is still a good selection for classroom studies and individual reading. Occasional pen-and-ink drawings illustrate the story. Reproductions of Grace Bedell's letter and Lincoln's reply are included.-Susan Hepler, Burgundy Farm Country Day School, Alexandria, VA

4 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Mrs. Hatley on April 8, 2000
Format: Paperback
This book is a very interesting way to read about U.S. history during the times before the Civil War. It is based on the true story of a young girl who wants to help Lincoln get elected in order to stop slavery. Many important details of the time period help to make the reader understand what life was like then. It also includes photos of the actual letters written between Grace and Mr. Lincoln.

Format: Paperback
I really like this story because it has the President Abraham Lincoln in it. The story has a little girl who wants the president to grow a beard so that he would look more handsome and to free the slaves from freedom and they won't have to be sold to people.

I got this book as a part of a reading program for a 10 year old. The book is good for that age group. I learned a few things myself. It was nice to re-visit information about Abe Lincoln from this perspective. I would recommend the book.
