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.

We love all the Who Was books (and the Who Is, and Where Is, and What Is, and all the others). We have dozens of them. They are quick reads with short chapters, big font, and lots of pictures. They make a great addition to our homeschool library and thry are very educational.

I wish I could write a review for the entire series! I bought these for my 4th/5th grader and had him read them before we went to Boston and New York this summer - we did 6 Cub Sout trails and read about Paul Revere, The Boston Tea Party, Washington, Jefferson, the Statue of Liberty, Ellis Island, before going...we had to save Gettysburg and Lincoln for next summer though (though we did one of the Lincoln trails in DC 3 years ago). It involved him more in the hikes, he knew what he was seeing, and was able to make a connection and understanding better...which will help with American History in 5th grade this year and his attention deficiencies in school. We read every night as a part of the school reading program and these are perfect for him. The books have helped build his comprehension and improve his reading confidence since being diagnosed with dyslexia.

I bought these for my third grade classroom. They are great for the biography genre and then to use for report writing. The three years I've used them so far the kids LOVED them. Easy for their reading levels, informative, and people they have heard of in their lives. They would read their own and then read other that they had heard of. Could have left these books out 1/2 year and they would have still been reading them.
