Literature for Lincoln's Birthday

If you are looking to change-up your lessons for Lincoln's birthday, why not consider Vinnie and Abraham, by Dawn Fitzgerald?  This charming picture book tells the true story of a young girl who was commissioned to create a statue of President Lincoln.

You can even go see the statue in Washington D.C.  My husband planned a wonderful family trip to the Capitol building, where we got to see the sculpture for ourselves.

Happy presidential reading,
Christine
