We can all be heroes. That’s the inspiring message of this lively, collectible picture book biography series from New York Times bestselling author Brad Meltzer. Kids always search for heroes, so we might as well have a say in it, Brad Meltzer realized, and so he envisioned this friendly, fun approach to biography for his own kids, and for yours. Each book tells the story of one of America’s icons in an entertaining, conversational way that works well for the youngest nonfiction readers, those who aren’t quite ready for the Who Was series. Each book focuses on a particular character trait that made that role model heroic. For example, Abraham Lincoln always spoke up about fairness, and thus he led the country to abolish slavery. This book follows him from childhood to the presidency, including the Civil War and his legendary Gettysburg Address. This engaging series is the perfect way to bring American history to life for young children, and to inspire them to strive and dream.

I am Abraham Lincoln is a great introduction to our 16th president.
The story is written with both facts and fiction but the true character of President Lincoln comes across in a few important messages weaved into this story kids can appreciate today.
The pictures are vibrant and absolutely adorable. I love the art in this book.

MichaelsreviewAbraham Lincoln is my favorite president.  I love to read books about him. This book has a lot of facts about our 16th president but some of the story is made up.

I really liked this book and I recommend it to anyone who loves history and Abraham Lincoln.
