Abraham Lincoln didn’t look like a president. He didn’t always act like a president, either—he liked to wrestle with his sons and tell jokes. But he always fought for fairness, freedom, and unity.

Beginning readers will learn about the milestones in Abraham Lincoln’s life in this Level Two I Can Read biography, which combines a traditional, illustrated narrative with historical photographs at the back of book. Complete with a timeline, photographs, and little-known facts about the United States’ sixteenth president: the long and tall Abraham Lincoln.

Long, Tall Lincoln is a Level Two I Can Read, geared for kids who read on their own but still need a little help.
