Hopkinson, Deborah. 2008. Abe Lincoln Crosses a Creek: A Tall, Thin Tale (Introducing His Forgotten Frontier Friend). New York: Schwartz & Wade.
What we do in life does matter - even if we're not famous, even if no one is watching, even if we're only ten years old. That's the message in this little-known true story from Abraham Lincoln's childhood. Delightfully told,
"Now, I can just hear you grumblin', Who? That feller isn't in my history book. What do I care?"
and humorously illustrated, Abe Lincoln Crosses a Creek is a fun read-aloud with a great message.
