TITLE: Abe's Fish A Boyhood Tale of Abraham Lincoln
AUTHOR: Jen Bryant
ILLUSTRATOR: Amy June Bates
Young Abraham Lincoln and his family learn an important lesson one day when he goes fishing. His family expects him to bring home fish for their supper. They are disappointed when he returns home without a catch until he tells them what happened to the fish he did catch.
The illustrations are wonderful and give you the feel of being with Abe as he goes fishing.
This book is appropriate for elementary aged children. Author's Notes are included with more detailed information at the back of the book as well as where she got the idea of this book.
I really enjoyed this book and thought it had a great lesson. This is a great one to read in my opinion!
