Lincoln’s Little Girl by Cecelia Holland

I love books about Abe Lincoln. I don’t know why, but he’s always been my favorite historical figure. I was excited when I got to download Lincoln’s Little Girl by Cecelia Holland. I had never heard the stories about Julie and her diary. I didn’t hear about her brothers who were invited to play with the Lincoln boys in the White House.
Julie gives a wonderful insight into the home life of Abe Lincoln, Mary and the boys. I am always looking for more things to read about Lincoln and his life. I enjoyed reading about Lincoln’s relationship with all the kids. He made time for the boys when it would have been easy, and almost excusable, to ignore them for the hard times as president, especially during the Civil War.
Obviously, I enjoyed this book. I think it is a great read and would be wonderful to share with students who are able to read chapter books up to adult readers. I am giving the story 5 stars.
