Riassunto: A Caldecott Medal Book, A Child Study Children's Book Committee: Children's Book of the Year
We at Beautiful Feet Books are excited to announce the publication of Abraham Lincoln the beloved classic in a special hardback edition in celebration of the bicentennial anniversary of Lincoln's birth. This edition is published from the original 1940 printing and we were able to recreate the vivid colors originally intended by the d'Aulaires. This is a must have for any fan of the d'Aulaires'. America was at a crossroads in 1939 as they debated whether to join the Allies in their battle against Hitler's relentless march across Europe. As European immigrants the d'Aulaires felt keenly the importance of standing against injustice, and saw in Lincoln the archetypal American hero as he stood against the injustice of slavery. It was this spirit they hoped to exemplify in their biography of young Abe as he grew into manhood against the backdrop of the wilderness of Kentucky, the deep woods of Indiana, and the prairies of Illinois. Camping for weeks in Lincoln country, the d'Aulaires imbibed the spirit of the man Lincoln as well as his humor and good will. From his days as a clerk, teaching himself law reading Blackstone, practicing law in Springfield, running unsuccessfully for office, debating Stephen Douglas over the issue of slavery, and ultimately becoming President of the United States, the d'Aulaires have written and beautifully illustrated the life of one of America's most remarkable citizens.
Dall'editore: From his humble beginnings in the Kentucky wilderness to the peak of his career as President, this picture biography brings Lincoln to life for first-time readers.
"A well-rounded and well-proportioned outline of Lincoln's life...in an easy-running text unclouded by sentimentality."--The New York Times.
