Riassunto: A special reissue for the 200th anniversary of Abraham Lincoln's birthday!
The young narrator of this story shares his birthday with Abraham Lincoln, has the same tall, lanky frame with big hands and feet, and gets teased at school similar to the way Lincoln was criticized by the public centuries ago. For these reasons, the young boy likens himself to the legendary president and imagines what it would be like if Lincoln were still around, solving the problems of today's America.
The reissue of this poetic, boldly drawn picture book is just in time for Lincoln's 200th birthday!
Louise Borden was born in Cincinnati, Ohio, in 1949. Inspired by a grandmother who loved history, Borden grew up fascinated by the stories of ordinary people and their relation to historical events. An avid reader of nonfiction and historical fiction, Borden majored in history at Denison University. She worked as a teaching assistant and later as a teacher for young children and realized a lifelong dream when she became co-owner of The Bookshelf, a bookstore in her hometown of Cincinnati.
In 1971, Borden (then Walker) married Peter Borden. It was when the younger of their two daughters started elementary school that Borden began work on her first children's book, Caps, Hats, Socks, and Mittens: A Book About the Four Seasons. Her love of history has come into play in many of the books that have followed, as has her experience — through both teaching and parenthood — with children's thoughts, feelings, and concerns. Borden enjoys playing tennis, watching baseball (she's still an avid fan of the Cincinnati Reds), and reading, a pastime which keeps her mindful of the interests of her audience.
