If you grew up with Abraham Lincoln, what kind of house would you live in? How would you travel? What would you do for fun?" These — and 25 other questions children might ask about life in Lincoln's time — are answered in this information-packed book for young readers.
The author shows boys and girls what it would be like to live in the same places that Lincoln lived — as a boy in Kentucky and Indiana, as a young man in the prairie town of New Salem, Illinois, and later in the city of Springfield, Illinois.
A picture appendix shows what great changes occurred from the time Lincoln was a boy to the time he was President in Washington D.C.
