Top Customer Reviews
THE GETTYSBURG ADDRESS IN TRANSLATION: WHAT IT REALLY MEANS is one of the first books in the series. The book examines Lincoln's Gettysburg Address and deconstructs it so elementary readers can understand what it means. The core of the book takes small portions of the Gettysburg Address as they are written and places them on one page. On the next page of the book facing the part of the speech being examined is a modern reading of Lincoln's words. To supplement the "translation" the book is filled with photographs, charts, definitions of difficult words, maps, facsimiles of real documents, a timeline, a glossary, and other illustrations. The core of the book is prefaced by an introduction that explains about President Lincoln and how the Gettysburg Address came about and it is followed by an epilogue that puts all of the events into context.Read more ›
Interesting photographs and illustrations add to kids' understanding of the history at work in 1863, and the "interpretation" pages, although maybe a little too dumbed-down and God-omitting, are helpful.
Great chunking of the text makes for easy memorization. This is a very good book.
