Abe Lincoln Remembers

Abe Lincoln Remembers
written by Ann Turner
illustrated by Wendell Minor

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.  Kirkus Reviews ended their review of this book by saying "this handsome and genuinely appealing collaboration transcends the usual picture book biography genre."
