Stand Tall, Abe Lincoln
by Judith St. George, illustrated by Matt Faulkner

Kids' Wings Award for Outstanding Literature

"He gained confidence to take his sense of fairness, his careful way of thinking, his hatred of cruelty, and his ability to settle quarrels out into the world."

You have heard of the great 16th President of the United States, but do you know HOW he became great? Did cheering crowds who loved him make him great? Did he become great when he became President?

No, becoming great began the day he was born, a tiny baby born in a one-room log cabin in the backwards of Kentucky. In learning to obey his parents and do jobs he didn't want to do gave him muscles and taught him to stand tall as a loyal follower. His love for books at a time when books were rare made him appreciate learning. Abraham Lincoln had many problems as a young boy. Life was hard. He knew what hunger felt like. He knew what sadness felt like. The problems in his life became the gifts that enabled him to grow stronger so that he could stand tall when bigger problems came.

When he grew up, he was able to become a giver. He became a President who stood tall and who gave the United States one of the best gifts of all.

Stand Tall, Abe Lincoln is the story of Lincoln's boyhood. It is the story of how he became one of the most beloved Presidents in our nation's history.
