A Picture Book of Abraham Lincoln is a very simple (read-aloud / beginner) introduction to the life of Mr. Lincoln. Basic facts are provided concerning his life, along with colorful illustrations. A few important events – his marriage, the Lincoln / Douglass debates, the War, the Gettysburg address, etc. – are mentioned but are neither described nor interpreted.

Conclusion. If a child is ready to study the life of Abraham Lincoln, they could use a more detailed, historical resource, such as Who Was Abraham Lincoln?, or …If You Grew Up with Abraham Lincoln.
