I ordered this book for my son who is going to do a wax museum project at school. The project requires him to recite information of Abraham Lincoln when someone comes by and presses his button in front of his display. When I told him I ordered a book for him he was a little less then pleased, he is 10 mind you and reading is not quite as fun as baseball. When the book arrived he became more excited and since he has started reading it he hasn't put it down! He just walks around the house saying "hey Dad, did you know....?" I am so glad this book made him excited to read and even happier that he is excited about WHAT he is reading! Shipping was crazy fast, book was wrapped and protected very well, just an awesome job all around, Thanks!

I loved the book. I couldn't put the book down until I was done. I love quizzing my parents after I finish a Who Was book cause I learn so much. Great book for learning about Abraham Lincoln.

This Big Head Series of children's books are terrific. I particularly enjoyed this book on our beloved 16th President and so will your children! A great introduction to American History. The illustrations are very well done-even though the heads are a bit out of proportion!

This is the first time I've ever picked up a Who Was _____? book. It's a great historical resource for young students and students with difficulty comprehending. It's a great read-aloud book and has adorable little drawings. Definitely worth the money. I bought mine as the Kindle edition so that my students can read it on our school computers, too.

My kids in 1st and 2nd grade love this series of books especially on Who Was George Washington, Thomas Jefferson and Abraham Lincoln. The illustrations are wonderfully portrayed and as I read to the kids they are mesmerized with the characters and events that surrounded their lives. It has been my experience that reading some of these select characters around Presidents' Day in February has tweaked their imagination. And be not fooled. Their little minds absorb everything you say.

One example revolved around Washington chopping down the cherry tree. They weren't overly concerned that he really didn't chop the tree down. What they wanted to know was why would someone makeup the story to begin with. And therein lies the real value and truth of these books.

Great reading and even better listening for children of all ages. Adults, who are not familiar with some of these American Presidents could certainly get a crash course that would enhance their image in the eyes of their children and grandchildren. Knowledge is power!
