Abe Lincoln's Hat

by Martha Brenner; illustrated by Donald Cook

A good early introduction to Abraham Lincoln. Perfect lead-in book if you are doing the popular "What I would keep in my hat" activity.

This reader shares some fascinating anecdotes about Abraham Lincoln, one of our greatest presidents. Abe started out in life as an absent-minded frontier lawyer. How did he nudge his memory? He stuck letters, court notes, contracts, and even his checkbook in his trademark top hat. When he took off his hat, it was all there! Young readers will be utterly engaged with how Abe's humanity comes across in this accessible, easy-to-read book.  Written by Martha Brenner;  illustrated by Donald Cook.
