Editorial Reviews

Review

"One of the most critically acclaimed, best-selling children's book series ever published".

-- The New York Times --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

From the Inside Flap

This warmly told biography of our sixteenth president is enriched by many authentic but seldom told anecdotes and complemented by bold color illustrations that capture the spirit of Lincoln and his era.

The latest book club pick from Oprah
"The Underground Railroad" by Colson Whitehead is a magnificent novel chronicling a young slave's adventures as she makes a desperate bid for freedom in the antebellum South. See more

I teach at an inner-city school where many of the students are reading below grade level (but making great progress). This means I am always on the lookout for high-interest, low-level (high-low) books that deal with the content my students are responsible for learning. This book and the entire Landmark biography series is one of the best buys I have made yet. I bought this book for my 5th graders because they have been learning about the Civil War. The students who read this book loved it, and have gone on to read more of the biographies in the Landmark series. For those of you who are familiar with the DRA, this book is an O (3rd grade reading level). However, the content is not watered down, so my students have learned a lot from reading these books.

The Landmark Series is a terrific series. This is a warm and informative account of the life of our beloved 16th President. Purchase this book and enjoy reading it to your 4 to 8 year old children. Abe Lincoln has so many wonderful qualities and was such a great role model!! Highly recommended!

This is not the Landmark edition. Amazon has incorporated the reviews from the Landmark edition with this earlier, original edition. Although the writer and text are the same, this Random House Step-Up edition from 1965 has the original illustrations by the famed Jack Davis.

My 6 year old son is fascinated with Presidential history and specifically Abraham Lincoln. We've read several "kid-friendly" books on Lincoln and this was by-far the best!

Bought as a gift for grandchild. Read thru it myself prior to giving it as present and can't believe how much information is presented in such clear and easy statements.

Purchased for school district. Since I didn't hear any complaints (which I would), I can only assume that teacher was happy with the item.
