Abe Lincoln's Hat (Martha Brenner) - A far cry from the reverent tone of most children's books on Lincoln, this short, anecdotal biography actually humanizes him. Lincoln is shown as a struggling and somewhat disorganized lawyer who makes his way through goodwill and good sense. The book begins with his purchase of a tall black hat. Later, a group of boys rig up a high wire and knock it off his head, scattering the important papers he kept inside. Courtroom stories include Lincoln proving which man owned a young horse by letting the colt loose to go to its mother and his defense of a slave's right to be granted freedom in Illinois, a free state. The humor, lively lines, and soft, shaded colors of Cook's illustrations add to the book's appeal. Recommended for ages 7-10.
Abe Lincoln: The Boy Who Loved Books (Kay Winters) - Using simple language, bare-bones details, and uncluttered illustrations, Winters introduces America's sixteenth president. She recounts events from Lincoln's childhood in Kentucky and Indiana and his young adulthood in New Salem, Illinois. The engaging narrative emphasizes Lincoln's love of books and reading, which flourished despite his lack of formal education. Recommended for ages 4-8.

Recommended for ages 9-12.
L Is for Lincoln: An Illinois Alphabet (Kathy-Jo Wargin) - The home of one of America`s most revered presidents is also home to American icons such as the Ferris wheel and John Deere tractors. But even a lifelong "Illini" might not know the full story behind the Tully Monster, The Northern Corss, or Old Quincy. Children, teachers, and parents- from cities to farmlands- will enjoy the clever poems, rich illustrations, and revealing text in "L is for Lincoln." Recommended for ages 4-8.

Abigail and her friends are ready to put their thinking caps on. But this time Mr. C wants them to do more than put their heads together-he wants them to travel back in time! Turns out the "What If?" questions are real, and Mr. C has just come back from a visit to the past. He needs their help because it looks like President Lincoln might quit and never free the slaves! With a time-travel gadget and only two hours to spare, Abigail and her friends are going back to the past. But even though time traveling isn't hard, convincing Abraham Lincoln not to give up isn't going to be easy....Recommended for ages 9-12.

Abraham Lincoln (12 Feb 1809 – 15 Apr 1865) - This American icon truly transcended the Presidency. Known as "The Great Emancipator" Lincoln basically preserved and restored our Union and finally put an end to this nation's greatest shame: slavery. Magnetic and powerful, Lincoln was either loved or hated - yet "Honest Abe" stood fast to his ideals and rose to the occasion. He was ambitious, decisive, humorous, and even vain. A man obsessed with military strategy and in love with the game of politics, he was a brilliant public speaker. Even after the South was defeated in the Civil War, Lincoln showed no malice or signs of vindictiveness. His second term would have focused on a nation that needed to heal itself, but his life was cut short on April 14, 1865 when Confederate sympathizer John Wilkes Booth assassinated the greatest President who ever lived. Apropos, Abraham is a Hebrew name meaning "Father of a multitude (of nations)". Lincoln, which is also a widely used male name in America in homage to this great man, is a surname of Celtic origin meaning "lake settlement". A woman of history in her own right, the very vivacious and impulsive Mary Todd Lincoln was Abe's First Lady.
