About the Author
"Nothing is more critical, I believe, than that children growing up in these critical explosive days should be given an understanding of American history as a part of the history of the world. Every year this grows more urgent, as increasingly rapid communication integrates world events more closely and the impact of foreign affairs on our own lives becomes more serious and immediate." Genevieve Foster wrote this nearly fifty years ago. It resonates with perhaps more truth today. As a result of this clarion call we have sold many of her enduring "World" titles because of the timeless nature of her books. Her writing style is clear, concise and fluid with her greatest strength as a storyteller being her ability to bring her readers right into the minds and times of her characters.

Foster once wrote, “Nothing is more critical, I believe, than that children growing up in these critical explosive days should be given an understanding of American history as a part of the history of the world.” Abraham Lincoln’s World would serve as an invaluable aid to any student’s study of the times in which Lincoln lived. And the book makes the information interesting to read because it presents the events in story form instead of a dry, dusty list of facts. The new expanded edition includes additional material provided by the author’s daughter, Joanna Foster. Other Newbery Honor Books by Genevieve Foster are George Washington’s World (1942), George Washington (1950), and Birthdays of Freedom, Vol. 1 (1953). Other similar books by the same author include Augustus Caesar’s World: A Story of Ideas and Events from B.C. 44 to 14 A.D. (1947), The World of Captain John Smith (1959), The World of Columbus and Sons (1965), and The World of William Penn (1973).
