Beautiful Feet Books Abraham Lincoln's World

The 1940 Newbury Honor title, Abraham Lincoln's World sets American history into a world context. Short, beautifully written stories explain what was going on during the years of Abraham Lincoln's birth, childhood, employment as a storekeeper and lawyer, and finally during his years as president. Discover that when Abe Lincoln was a boy romping the woods of Kentucky, Thomas Jefferson was completing his eighth year as president, George III reigned in Great Britain and Napolean was about to meet his Waterloo. By the time Lincoln was old enough to help his father chop wood, Harriet Beecher was reading anything she could get her hands on, Charles Darwin was collecting toads, crabs and shells, and the impoverished boy Dickens was working in a shoe blacking factory in London. Have fun as you learn all about the intersections in history we often don't see! 345 pages, softcover. Ages 9 & up.

Enjoyable and accurate to read, the author intertwines world history during Lincoln's lifetime. It pulls world history together in a memorable story. I have reread and shared it with many.
