Abraham Lincoln himself narrates this reminiscence of his life--starting with his childhood in a log cabin in the woods, and ending (interestingly) just before he goes to the theater on that fateful night.
Written in somber free verse and paired by richly colored, almost photo-realistic full page illustrations, Abe Lincoln Remembers "transcends the usual picture book biography genre." (Kirkus)
This isn't our personal top pick for this subject, but the illustrations are truly beautiful -- so luminous! This is a great selection if you prefer realistic over cute. :)
