Publisher's Summary

Born to a family of farmers, Lincoln stood out from an early age - literally! (He was six feet four inches tall.) As 16th President of the United States, he guided the nation through the Civil War and saw the abolition of slavery. But Lincoln was tragically shot one night at Ford's Theater - the first President to be assassinated. .

Great for my 3rd graders Report

We were able to listen to the audio tape while in the car and at home in order for my daughter to do her president's report. It had all the information she needed and then some:-)

Great education for the price!

Any additional comments?

I got this for the kids and I to listen to in the car. This is the perfect way to make car time educational. My oldest kid is 8 and my youngest is 1. Some of the story is above their heads but even my 5 year old is learning a lot. It is totally appropriate and I am very conservative. I will be buying more stories like these!

Wonderful!

We enjoyed "Who was Abraham Lincoln?" so much! It was very well received by my two special needs children. They learned so much through listening, the reader's tone and flow of speech was perfect for them!

best audio book EVER!!

So incredibly interesting , I was memorized by the depth in which this production went into
So much so I fell asleep almost immediately (much to my displeasure as I would of liked to
Listen to all of it!!)
