KIRKUS STARRED REVIEW!

"One decision can change your life…these 10 decisions turned a man into a president.  The father-daughter Hirschfeld team examines the life of Abraham Lincoln in this quirky and humorous biography . . . Educators will love this title for its wealth of information, and young readers will love it for its welcoming tone.  Be a best friend and give this book to someone who has not read it."
