Abstract:

As President, Abraham Lincoln fought for freedom and equality for all Americans. Stunning photographs combine with lively illustrations and engaging, age-appropriate stories in DORLING KINDERSLEY READERS, a multilevel reading program guaranteed to capture children's interest while developing their reading skills and general knowledge. This biography of one of the most famous and recognizable American presidents mark DK's commitment to bringing US history-based biographies to the DK Readers series. In Abraham Lincoln, readers will find out about our sixteenth president's humble beginnings, his career as a lawyer, his marriage and family life, and his presidency during the Civil War. The 48-page Level 3 books, designed for children who can read on their own, contain more complex sentence structure and more detail. Young readers will devour these kid-friendly titles, which cover high-interest topics such as sharks, and the Bermuda Triangle, as well as classics like Aladdin. Information boxes highlight historical references, trivia, pronunciation, and other facts about words and names mentioned. Averaging 2,400 to 2,800 words, these books offer a 50/50 picture-to-text ratio. The Dorling Kindersley Readers combine an enticing visual layout with high-interest, easy-to-read stories to captivate and delight young bookworms who are just getting started. Written by leading children's authors and compiled in consultation with literacy experts, these engaging books build reader confidence along with a lifelong appreciation for nonfiction, classic stories, and biographies. There is a DK Reader to interest every child at every level, from preschool to grade 4.
