Title: Abe's Fish: A Boyhood Tale of Abraham Lincoln
Author(s):: Jen Bryant
Genre:: Children's Book
Summary: Young Abe goes fishing and comes across a solider fighting for freedom.
My Thoughts: Interesting little story. I don't know if it's based on any truth, but young Abe Lincoln goes fishing, and on his way home with dinner, he runs into a solider. Out of the kindness of his heart, Abe gives the hungry solider his family's dinner, knowing his family will be proud of him. This tale talks a lot about freedom, and foreshadows Abe's own future with freedom as president. It is a nice story, and I could see it possibly happening in Lincoln's lifetime.
