for Honest Abe by Edith Kunhardt and Malcah Zeldis
"Zeldis's oversized gouache paintings give this picture-book biography a folkloric look that suits its larger-than-life subject. Kunhardt's brief text avoids any fictionalization and presents the important events in Lincoln's youth and many careers in a straightforward, objective fashion.... A praiseworthy effort." School Library Journal.
"Hits the high spots and finds time for memorable tidbits... Consider multiple copies." Booklist (starred review).
