Reviews - What do customers think about Abe Lincoln's Hat (Step into Reading)?
Loved it when I was a child! Mar 25, 2008
This was one of my favorite books when I was a child. I read it over and over again and I really enjoyed the illustrations.
A Good Reader Apr 23, 2007
As a reader, this is a good product. While it may perpetuate some popular myths or stereotypes about Lincoln (big hat, black clothes, simple but wise gentle-man) - so what? More truth than fiction. In that, this little reader does the valuable services of endearing another generation to our greatest President.
Fun History Lesson Mar 10, 2006
I read this book to my pre-K class, who just loved it. Learning about Lincoln's hat habit along with the other significant things in his life was great. It made the kids listen to the entire book (hard for some 4 and 5 year-olds). I even had one boy show up the next day with notes in his hat!! My 7-year-old son loves the book too.
Great for younger children Mar 10, 2006
I find this a very good book to use with my first graders in learning something about Abe Lincoln. The pictures are good and the anctedotes relate to the children.
Hat As File Cabinet Feb 1, 2006
This is a "Step 3" reader in the "Step Into Reading" program. This is a good book that introduces young readers to American history, specifically to Abe Lincoln. We learn that Lincoln's iconic hat was more than simply an item of apparel -- it also served as a "file cabinet" for important papers and letters.
