As we head into another school year, I am on the look out for educational books to make learning more enjoyable. My Best Friend, Abe Lincoln: A Tale of Two Boys From Indiana is one of those books.
It’s a cute book that tells the story of Abraham Lincoln as a young boy from ages 11-14 years old (1820-1823). The story is told by Abe’s best friend (fictional), as he grows up in southwestern Indiana.
The book is easy for young children to listen to and read. It is also full of known facts, even though it is a fictional book. It’s an easier way to learn more about what shaped the 16th president, while not being boring like a traditional text book. Paired with other books I do believe this could fit in with your history curriculum.
My girls enjoyed the book! I hope your children do as well!
