More About The Lincolns by Candace Fleming
 
 
 
Overview
The award-winning author of "Ben Franklin's Almanac "and "Our Eleanor "has created an enthralling joint biography of our greatest president, Abraham Lincoln, and his complex wife--a scrapbook history that uses photographs, letters, engravings, and even cartoons, along with a fascinating text, to form an enthralling museum on the page. "The Lincolns" received four starred reviews and won the "Boston Globe-Horn Book" Award for Non-Fiction, making this the perfect addition to any collection.
Here are the extraordinary lives of Abraham and Mary, from their disparate childhoods and tumultuous courtship, through the agony of the Civil War, to the loss of three of their children, and finally their own tragic deaths. Readers can find Mary's recipe for Abraham's favorite cake--and bake it themselves; hear what Abraham looked like as a toddler; see a photo of the Lincolns' dog; discover that the Lincoln children kept goats at the White House; see the Emancipation Proclamation written in Lincoln' s own hand. Perfect for reluctant readers as well as history lovers, "The Lincolns "provides a living breathing portrait of a man, a woman, and a country.
