Picture Book: Amazing illustrations that aid in understanding the Gettysburg Address.Alix Turner
Inspiring is one word you could use to describe this book. The trick is getting children and students to take the time to like it.Susan Alvarado
Something every American should read at least once in their life. Completely moving, especially in the times we live in today. We could all take a chapter out of Lincoln's bookMichael
What can you say? It's the Gettysburg Address.Sara Caroline
This book is about the Gettysburg address and when Abe Lincoln got shot . Even though this book is small , it is still very goodJill Brown
The only text in the book is Abraham Lincoln's speech. Every page is a few lines from his speech and illustrated to reflect what he was saying. There is an author's foreward to explain the history of it or importance of it.Maurice Lacerda
This book makes you understand why Abraham Lincoln is one of the most important and celebrated statesmen of all time.Denise
Of the handful of political speeches that I value, this is one.Pitta
words to speech with great illustrationsTyler
Some of the best speeches ever are super super short. Modern politicians could learn something from it.Kim
Incredible woodcut illustrations that compliment the text very well. Great spacing of the speech so that there is time to discuss some of the big words that children probably won't know.Joe
While we all, of course, applaud the sentiments, the speech is significantly shorter than I had supposed. I guess it adds punch to say a thing in fewer words. I am surprised by the emphasis on the dead and their contribution - in popular depiction, the Gettysburg Address focuses more on the living and what they can do, than the dead and what they can no longer do.Stacey
A beautifully illustrated version of the Gettysburg Address.John Yelverton
Probably the greatest political speech over made at exactly the moment it needed to be made.Lisa A.
If asked what great Americans past or present I would like to meet, Abraham Lincoln would definitely be in the top 10. His eloquent words stir the mind and the soul. They not only acknowledge the terrible state of our country during the Civil War but also give hope about what our country could become. It's been said that he wrote the Gettysburg Address while suffering from scarlet fever, if so he did an amazing job of overcoming his own pain and suffering to bring hope to our nation.
