Abe's Honest Words brings history to life with illustrations, historical photos and the words of Honest Abe himself. Themes of grit, determination, equality, and a love for all mankind are front and center; while topics covered - from Abe's early days through to his presidency, slavery and the civil war - provide a good backdrop for parent child discussions. Abe's Honest Words is written by Doreen Rappaport and illustrated by Kadir Nelson.
