Format: Paperback
What a wonderful book.

I teach 5th grade in the Brooklyn public schools. We study the Civil War and it's always such a challenge to find books that 5th graders can read and enjoy *and* that are also substantial. I had my class of 31 kids read this book and it couldn't have gone down better.

As adults, we forget how much we rely on our own background knowledge when we read social studies text, knowledge which children don't have. It's one of the reasons that they often find social studies boring - they can't understand it. This book's child-friendly illustrations, beautifully calibrated explanations, and clear chronological progression allowed every child in the class to develop a really rich understanding. Kids who'd been bored or defeated by reading about our 16th president were suddenly deeply engaged by his life story, and were literally demanding to be allowed to read more for homework. For an entire week I've had children making comments about Lincoln, making connections between events in his life and drawing inferences about America in the 1860s. What a gift for all of us!

As if this weren't testimony enough, my own ten-year-old son loves it and re-reads it regularly...

Gave this book to my 8 yr old grandson, he read aloud and I actually learned some facts that I had not known. Very informative for all ages.

The Magic Tree House Books and Fact Trackers are the best elementary school books I have come across. The facts that Mary Pope Osborne gives are fun and informative for a 5-9 year old. My son and I have read the entire collection. It was fun for my son to learn about Abraham Lincoln. That is what Mary Pope Osborne does in her books...she makes learning fun.

She has been hooked to this series since she was 7 and has read them all. She especially loves the non-fiction companions. So do I, nothing beats letting them learn from a fun and educational book.

Format: Paperback
Young readers will enjoy all the basic facts about Abraham Lincoln plus interesting stories that convey the temperament and character of one of our most famous presidents.

What was Lincoln's experience with slavery? What type of father was he? What jobs did he have before becoming US President? And what's up with the beard?

Mary Pope Osborne and Natalie Pope Boyce provide short, interesting segments covering Lincoln's life. Elaborate illustrations and photographs complement the passages. For more information on Lincoln, the authors include in the back of the book listings of books, dvds, museums and landmarks and recommended internet sites.

The Fact Trackers that go with the Magic Tree House series are wonderful! We have found that when we read these after we've finished the corresponding Magic Tree House book, the kids are eager to listen to more facts. It raises questions and we have interesting discussions too. Our kids are four and six and love these books as much as the series.

Thank you, Ms. Osborne (your sister too) for these wonderful books!

Magic Treehouse books are wonderful! I love the fact trackers and how they teach real historical truth in a fun way "that also coincides with an adventure from one of the books they just read! My nine year old boy loves these, even my 11 year old likes them...even though she can finish one in an hour or two...and now my seven year old son has started reading them. Great, safe, fun adventures through history!
