I read bits and parts of the book to my students. After school, a dear young man came in and wanted to talk about the book. What a thrill that was for this teacher!.
I gave the book to the 7th grader on the promise he would read it. He assured me he would.
I have since ordered two more. One of which I must keep for myself. Lincoln is still an important piece of history; my job is to instill this to the students. Most of all, it is my job to inspire them to read inspite of computers, ipods, and television. I guess I am a book-pusher.
