Description

In a tiny log cabin
a boy listened
with delight
to the storytelling
of his ma and pa.
He traced letters
in sand, snow, and dust.
He borrowed books
and walked miles
to bring them back.

When he grew up,
he became the
sixteenth president
of the United States.
His name was
Abraham Lincoln.

He loved books.
They changed his life.
He changed the world.
