“While Lincoln’s life story is well known, Weiss does a good job of uncovering lesser-known facts and anecdotes about our 16th president…an informative and entertaining story told by a master storyteller.” —School Library Journal

“70 minutes of listening brings insights into Lincoln’s times and add a touch of drama the written word couldn’t approach.” —Children’s Bookwatch
