Abraham Lincoln




Lane Smith, author of Abe Lincoln's Dream, writes.  A small schoolgirl goes astray on her tour of the White House,  and she finds herself in Lincoln's bedroom and also discovers the ghost of the great president, Abraham Lincoln.   They meet and go on a journey across America.  Lincoln has many questions and concerns about the nation for which he gave his life.  Smith spins his original tale adding humor and surprise.  Illustrations are crazy, wonderful!  This book is a great read aloud for February.




And what fun creating the presidents' portraits...here is a fun art activity from
Use Lane Smith's book as a springboard to make this great portrait of Abraham Lincoln.  So prestigious.  


This would make a great model for kids to draw Lincoln.
