Ordinary People Change the World - I Am Abraham Lincoln

I'm going to be sharing some books with you over the next few weeks from an awesome series - Ordinary People Change The World. There are currently 8 books in the series and today I'll share some thoughts on I am Abraham Lincoln by Brad Meltzer.

First off this is a cute book. As homeschoolers we love books we can turn into unit studies and this one was PERFECT for that! So first off we read the book. My 5 year old learned lots of facts about good ole' Abe!  The book teaches us about how Lincoln really had strong convictions and stood up for right. His strong moral character as a youth shaped who he because as an adult.

Overall this was an adorable book, the illustrations by Christopher Elliopoulos were a lot of fun. Little Abe was adorable to look at.  After reading the book we set off on a project (remember Unit Study!)  We tried to replicate Ab's hat but I didn't have big enough construction paper so we had to scrape that idea. So what did we do? We built a log cabin!

Here are some pictures of that
