Description
Now, I'm sure you know lots about Abraham Lincoln, the sixteenth president of the United States. But what you might not know is that Abe would never have become president if it hadn't been for Austin Gollaher. Learn the story of what really happened to Honest Abe when he was just a kid in this nonfiction picture book that's perfect for President's Day and every day! The year is 1816. Abe is only seven years old, and his pal, Austin Gollaher, is ten. Abe and Austin decide to journey down to Knob Creek. The water looks scary and deep, and Austin points out that they don't know how to swim. Nevertheless, they decide to traverse it. I won't tell you what happens, but let's just say that our country wouldn't be the same if Austin hadn't been there to help his friend. An ALA-ALSC Notable Children's Book A Booklist Editors' Choice A Bulletin Blue Ribbon Book "Rewarding on many levels, this high-spirited picture book is an engaging example of metafiction for the younger set." -- Booklist, Starred "A lively, participatory tale. . . . This is a book you should add to your shelves. " -- School Library Journal, Starred "It's a winner." -- The Bulletin, Starred
