Abe Lincoln is worried. He cannot find his hat anywhere. Will his friends help him find it? Frederick Douglass is busy writing a book. Clara Barton is busy nursing wounded soldiers. What will Abe do?
From Harriett Tubman to Ulysses S. Grant, nobody seems to have the time to join the search. Will Abraham Lincoln find his hat in time to deliver the Gettysburg Address? This colorful and humorous board book primer features some of the most prominent figures of American history and introduces historians of all ages to the incredible beginning of the United States of America.
This is a cute idea and done very simply… perhaps too simply. The final page gives more details to give context to any of the historical figures you aren’t already familiar with, which is nice, but the illustrations are a little meh and it just felt like it didn’t quite reach its full potential.
