Author: Andrew Woods
Illustrator: Pat Schories
Pages: 32
Reading Level: Beginner
Star Rating: ★★★

This book is in the ‘First-Start’ biography series, and it really is one of the least informative, simplistic biographies I’ve read on Lincoln. The briefest snippets of his life are included, but they aren’t presented in a flowing, connected manner. All in all…

  1. Abe Lincoln: Log Cabin to White House by Sterling North
  2. Who Was Abraham Lincoln? by Janet B. Pascal
  3. Meet Abraham Lincoln by Barbara Cary
  4. Abe Lincoln: The Young Years by Keith Brandt
  5. If You Grew Up with Abraham Lincoln by Ann McGovern
  6. Abraham Lincoln by Jane A. Schott
  7. Abraham Lincoln by Augusta Stevenson
  8. Abe Lincoln’s Hat by Martha Brenner
  9. The President’s Puppy by Linda Oatman High
  10. Young Abraham Lincoln by Andrew Woods [this one!]
  11. A Picture Book of Abraham Lincoln by David A. Adler

Conclusion. Buy one of the other bios first.
