In honor of President Lincoln's birthday, consider reading FINDING LINCOLN, a new picture book written by Ann Malaspina and illustrated by Coretta Scott King Honor artist Colin Bootman. Since its release, FINDING LINCOLN has received stellar reviews and the following recognitions:

2009 National Parenting Publications Award (NAPPA) Gold Winner
2010 Notable Social Studies Trade Book for Young People

I believe President Lincoln, an avid reader himself, would approve of Malaspina's historically based story and her lovely dedication:
For the brave children who walked into a segregated library and asked to borrow a book.

I bought the book and loved it! Then I sent it to my niece who is homeschooling her children. This was the perfect introduction to civil rights for them. Great book!
