Lincoln and His Boys - Rosemary Wells

I originally wrote a review of this book after receiving it from the Picnic Basket in February. I am placing a copy of that review here as it is one of the Cybils nominees.
I found my copy in my school mailbox this afternoon as I was preparing to leave school. I could not wait to get home and read it. Once I started I could put it down. I loved the story told through the voice of Tad and Willie. It showed a personal side that most of us have never seen before.It showed the concern Lincoln had for all people, the great father that he was and how they handled the death of Willie in their own way.To me one of the most important things I found was that Lincoln made sure his cabinet knew where hsi family stood in the order of things. I can't wait to take this back to school tomorrow and share it with my students.

The opinions expressed in these review are mine alone and do not represent the views of the panel.
