I just posted about Doris Kearns Goodwin, and her Team of Rivals is everywhere you look with good reason, but I have to write about another wonderful new Lincoln book. Lincoln and His Boys by Rosemary Wells is a well researched book about Abraham Lincoln and his relationship with his sons Willie and Tad. Great events in American history and the small events of a family's life are revealed through the boys' eyes. It is an extraordinarily well written book, ideal for readers from about eight to twelve years old. They will see Lincoln as a major historical figure and a devoted father to his rambunctious sons. Lincoln and His Boys is illustrated with warm, gorgeous paintings by P.J. Lynch. I know I've raved about Lynch's work on this blog before, but these illustrations are really special. This book is definitely worth sharing with the young history buffs in your life!
