A spirited biography of the early years of Abraham Lincoln, one of history’s greatest and most important U.S. presidents!
 
Abraham Lincoln grew up poor and without schooling in a Kentucky wilderness and lost his mother before he was ten. It was sparkplug Sally Bush Johnston, who later married Abe’s father, brought a library of books to their log cabin home, and believed in Abe from the beginning. Her confidence in him was an inspiring turning point for young Abe, who went on to become one of the most revered and respected presidents in United States history.
 
Full-color illustrations. Includes bibliography!
 
About the Turning Point series:
 
Sometimes there is a happening in our lives that changes the way we think about ourselves and sends us along a new path. These turning points can come when we are young—thorugh a person we meet, an experience we have, a difficulty we overcome.
 
Since 1789, only a small number of people have been president of the United States. What has made these individuals unique? Was there a turning point in their lives that caused them to change direction and set them on a path that led them to the White House?

“Fast-paced. . . . Children accustomed to typically staid photographs of Lincoln will laugh out loud seeing him depicted as a squalling baby and a young boy riding a pet pig.”—School Library Journal
