Wise Abe Lincoln said, "No More!" to slavery,

Wise Abe Lincoln said, "No More!" to slavery,
Many brave days ago.

This simple song, sung to the tune of "The Old Grey Mare," was adapted from an actual campaign song for Lincoln during his run for the presidency.

Barbara McClintock's distinguished books have four times been honored as NEW YORK TIMES Best Illustrated Children's Books.

From School Library Journal:

Starred Review. PreSchool-Grade 3—With a fresh approach to Lincoln that is both delightful and accurate, Aylesworth sets history to the tune of "The Old Gray Mare" and the derivative song "Our Abe Lincoln Came Out of the Wilderness," which was popular during the 16th president's campaign. Lincoln's life is depicted in the singsong verse through the framing devise of students performing a grade-school play. For example, "Strong Abe Lincoln fell oaks with a mighty axe/Oaks with a mighty axe/Oaks with a mighty axe/Strong Abe Lincoln fell oaks with a mighty axe/Many split rails ago." McClintock captures the exuberance with charming visuals that outline significant aspects of the leader's life and lore. Scenes rendered in watercolor and pen and ink feature a multicultural cast. Details such as pegs on their cabin wall demonstrate the careful research that informed the illustrations. A short paragraph at the end explains each scene. As an introduction for young children, this is a perfect resource, for the engaging images and catchy phrasing as well as for the larger story that it so deftly summarizes.—Janet S.
