Lincoln and Kennedy: A Pair to Compare - Gene Barretta

Two U.S. presidents, elected one hundred years apart, had a surprising amount in common. Although one was born in a log cabin and raised with modest means and the other had everything a boy could ask for, both became military leaders. Both were later elected to the U.S. House of Representatives and then nominated to be vice presidential candidates. Both men worked to ameliorate racial inequalities in a divided nation. And, tragically, both presidents were assassinated. Author/illustrator Gene Barretta offers readers a fascinating glimpse into the lives and work of Lincoln and Kennedy: A Pair to Compare (Henry Holt, $17.99). Ages 7-10.
