If You Grew Up With Abraham Lincoln by Ann Mcgovern, George Ulrich (Illustrator)
"If you grew up with Abraham Lincoln, what kind of house would you live in? How would you travel? What would you do for fun?" These - and 25 other questions children might ask about life in Lincoln's time - are answered in this information-packed book for young readers.
The author shows boys and girls what it would be like to live in the same places that Lincoln lived - as a boy in Kentucky and Indiana, as a young man in the prairie town of New Salem, Illinois, and later in the city of Springfield, Illinois.
A picture appendix shows what great changes occurred from the time Lincoln was a boy to the time he was President in Washington D.C.
