Description

Skinny as a beanpole and tall for his age, an awkward boy learns that Abraham Lincoln was called "gorilla," "baboon," and "backwoods hick." Yet, along with big feet and big hands, Lincoln had a big heart and the great ability to keep a nation together. And what the boy learns as he studies Lincoln opens his mind to great possibilities for his own future.

A poetic story by Louise Borden and magnificent paintings by Caldecott–honor recipient Ted Lewin introduce young children to a wonderful boy and a great president. An awkward young boy learns that Abraham Lincoln went from being the butt of childhood teasing to being a man with a big heart and a great ability to lead.

"[The] images of Lincoln at different points in his life make a powerful collage… There's nothing preachy about Borden's text, which makes the boy's connection to this historical figure immediate, honest, and straightforward. It introduces Lincoln with beautiful simplicity." — Kirkus Reviews
