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

"No More!" to slavery,

"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.

Beginning with "Babe Abe Lincoln was born in the wilderness" to "Strong Abe Lincoln fell oaks with a mighty ax" to "Great Abe Lincoln died hard for his noble deeds"--here is a perfect book for Lincoln's birthday that tells the story of Lincoln to the very youngest audience.

Barbara McClintock's charming 19th century-styled drawings depict children in a school play, acting out Lincoln's life. With art reminiscent of Maurice Sendak, and as a three-time New York Times Best Illustrator, McClintock is sure to garner awards and recognition. And Jim Aylesworth's ear for rhythms and rhymes will have everyone singing OUT LOUD!
