    1. EASILY ACCESSIBLE PRESIDENTIAL INFORMATIONSterling North's informative biography reads easily and should hold the attention of preteen students. The format includes: straight biographical narrative using simple syntax, short quotes from Lincoln's own memoires, fictionalized dialogue and reports by his cousin, Dennis Hanks--in backwoods dialect no less. Although the last chapters gloss over the Civil War and Lincoln's untimely assassination this 150-page book offers real insight into the events a [...]


    2. I really value these Landmark series books not only because I read so many of them as an older elementary student but now for their historical perspective. For instance, I found it interesting that North referred to the controversy around slave and free states as the "Cold War" between the eventual Union and Confederacy, this being written right around the early stages of what we call the Cold War (with Russia) now. I also appreciated that the author didn't sugar coat Lincoln's views on slavery, [...]


    3. Truthfully, I'd have to say this slim biography of our 16th president deserves 3.5 stars. This is a book I've had since I was a kid, and I'm pretty sure I read it at least once. It's evident that this book is marketed for younger readers, and it's definitely one I'd recommend for young ones interested in history and in particular, Abraham Lincoln. I'd venture to say, though, that this is more geared for readers in 9th or 10th grade than for early chapter book readers. Actually, to tell the truth [...]


    4. Abraham Lincoln was president of our nation during one of the most critical times in American history. People argue over whether he was the best or worst president ever – that issue will never be settled to the satisfaction of all. But what everyone does acknowledge is that President Lincoln – the man and his policies – still affect our nation today and is thus worth studying.Abe Lincoln: Log Cabin to White House tells Lincoln’s story, beginning with his birth and working through his lif [...]


    5. After reading Carl Sandburg's Abe Lincoln Grows Up and Russell Freedman's atrocious "photobiography" it was a pleasure to read a book that's abut it's subject and not the poliitical views of the author. Sterling North quotes the Declaration of Independence correctly and has some great, and accurate quotes from Thomas Jefferson. As always the Landmark series is the gold standard.


    6. From the famous log cabin and rail splitting to being a lawyer, courting Mary Todd (who almost married his handsome and well to do rival in law, politics and love, but was far more interested in the poor Lincoln, enough to wait just enough to have him ask her finally) to being elected over his rival into the white house and be the president during troubled years of US history of civil war and end of slavery.




    7. This book is for 6th graders. I felt like a 6th grader as I read it. I was reminded of a few of Lincoln's quirks and of his life.
