I thought this book was really great! The illustrations are awesome, there's fantastic historical tidbits, and it's about President Lincoln (that's my favorite part). There are a few times when the author chooses words like "darn" or "foolish" when I wish she hadn't, but all in all it was a fun story. It's a book that has potential to spark curiosity in our young readers to learn more about President Lincoln, or at least recognize and connect with him more when they learn more in school. There are lots of fun moments in this book, and Deborah is creative in involving her readers in Lincoln's creek crossing.
