Abraham Lincoln is a hero of American history. He has always been a hero of mine. I grew up in Illinois and we traveled to Springfield, IL several times to see his home, his tomb and all of the wonderful museums. If you ever want to take a road trip to experience some awesome history, I highly recommend Springfield, IL. Anyway, if you can’t take a road trip I have a fantastic book for you to read and I made some Abraham Lincoln Coloring Pages and an Abraham Lincoln Coloring Book!
I was sent the book I am Abraham Lincoln to read and review. It is part of the Ordinary People Change the World Series. I am Abraham Lincoln is a great book to read to preschool or Kindergarten students to teach them about Abraham Lincoln It is also a great book for first through 4th graders to read and learn about Abraham Lincoln. It is almost like a comic book, it is very entertaining and the children like to hear and learn about Mr. Lincoln. Additionally it presents Abraham Lincoln as an ordinary person who changed the world because of his hard work, determination and doing what is right. It has a strong moral message and it is inspiring for children to see how a ‘bullied’ child grew up to be something great.

Madreen Karle is a master first grade reading teacher with over 30 years of classroom experience. She taught reading in a special needs and English as a Second Language classroom. After retiring she wrote a reading program to help others learn how to teach reading. She is a trusted educator and author of 5 books to help teach children to read and write. In addition to her books, she is a mentor for 3 websites that give reading teacher tips (Mrs. Karle’s Sight and Sound Reading, Mrs. Karle’s Reading Patch, and Mrs. Karle’s Handwriting Patch). Through her teaching she learned that confidence was the key to learning to read. A child who is not confident at reading does not like to read and struggles to read. Mrs. Karle created “sunshine moments” to help teach children how to grow their confidence and learn to read.
Meeghan Karle Mousaw (Madreen’s daughter) has her Master’s in Special Education. She has 8 years experience teaching children to read online. In addition, she developed a curriculum to teach children handwriting called The Handwriting Patch. With the Handwriting Patch learning is fun because children learn to draw and learn handwriting at the same time. In 2019 The Handwriting Patch curriculum became an amazon best seller the first year it was released, helping thousands of kids learn handwriting with a unique, fun method. She is mom to 6 kids, each with differently learning abilities and struggles.
The Reading Patch was established by the creators of Mrs. Karle’s Sight and Sound Reading. Together they have been featured on the NBC media outlets and Parents Magazine online. Over the last 8 years in their online platform, Madreen and Meeghan have worked tirelessly with teachers, homeschoolers and parents looking to help children learn to read to become a trusted authority in teaching children to read and advocating early literacy skills. They often partner with other educational experts to deliver the most current information to the Reading Patch community.
