    1. Grace wants to do something. Something that will count. Something that will help Mr. Lincoln to win the election. But what can she do? Her father supports Mr. Lincoln, but he won’t let her sew flags or march in the parade or do anything. It’s not fair.But then, one day, as Grace looks at a poster of Mr. Lincoln, she sees something. She sees a shadow creeping up over the lower half of his face. She sees what Mr. Lincoln would look like with whiskers! Grace is sure that more people would vote [...]


    2. The book is simple. Yes, there is more to the discussion than what is presented here. Maybe a little over simplified but at least a great place to get the discussion started about states rights and the fact that there was more to the story than just slavery.All that to say it is a sweet story and the fact that it is based on a true story makes it all the more fun.



    3. This has always been my favorite stories in history. I think this is a good story to read older kids when you are talking about governments because it can show them that they can take part in the government just like adults can. And maybe after reading this book you can have them write a letter to the president.


    4. "Grace's Letter to Lincoln" is a historical fiction book of the girl that wrote a letter to President Lincoln. This is a great book that allows the minds of the young readers to explore the possible life that Grace Bedell lived. I chose this book because of its historical importance. I like that it reminds us that historical people are people too.


    5. My love of reading started when i was young, and it gives me immense pleasure to provide books to Spread the Word Nevada, an organization that passes them on to children in the community. They are a terrific organization supporting an important cause. If your local I encourage you to check them out. For those living further a field, look in your own community, their may already be a similar program in place. And if not, you can always help start one.spreadthewordnevada/Myself, I go out on the we [...]


    6. Grace's Letter to Lincoln is the second biography aimed at young readers by Peter and Connie Roop I've read.This book is part historical fiction and part biography. It was inspired by a letter written by then 11 year old Grace Bedell to Abraham Lincoln when he was running for president. In her letter she suggested that Lincoln try growing a beard to win votes. Grace's Letter to Lincoln includes a reproduction of the original letter at the close of the book.Besides the history of the letter, the [...]


    7. No awards won, meant for grades 2-5. Grace and her family are supporters of Lincoln. Grace wants to be able to help Lincoln win the election. She writes him a letter says that if he had whiskers he would most likely win. Grace wants to be a part of the election, but is too young to vote on her own. This story is great for children. It doesn't go in depth about many of Lincoln's politics but gives the exact idea of what he would like to achieve. It is an easy read for children of those ages. I wo [...]


    8. questions asked to pen pal:Did you like Grace's Letter to Lincoln? I did. I thought it was really cool that it was based on a true story. I also liked that I got to learn some new words and phrases like 'affectation' and 'happy as a clam at high water'. Did you learn a new word or phrase from reading the book?How brave Grace was to suggest that Mr. Lincoln grow whiskers! Can you imagine writing a letter to President Obama? Would you ask him to grow whiskers? On page 22, Mama agrees to let Grace [...]


    9. This is a great book for 2nd or 3rd graders to read. It is about a white girl who feels left out in the fight to end slavery. She is too young to protest so she decides to write a letter to the soon to be president, Abraham Lincoln. This is so appropriate with all the election excitement going on in the US right now. It brings out another perspective in that a white girl and her family see slavery being wrong and stand up for what is right. This could help children understand the oppression that [...]


    10. I read this book for my In2Books pen-pal and I LOVED it. It fictionalizes a wonderful true story about the little girl who wanted Lincoln to grow 'whiskers.' Super cute. It opened a wonderful dialog with my 3rd grade pen-pal and was a great learning experience for both of us. The book includes issues about sibling rivalry, doing chores, writing, politics, the Underground Railroad and Wide Awake Movement, and even includes an actual photograph of the letter that President Lincoln wrote back to Gr [...]


    11. This early chapter book tells the story of a young girl who writes to Abe Lincoln when he’s running for President. She gets a very polite letter in response, which makes her a celebrity in her town for a week. Perhaps limited by the word and chapter guidelines for early chapter books, the story is rather superficial. I had hoped it might give some cool ideas for Lincoln essays (yearly contest here in Oklahoma) or for President’s Day. However, Grace’s letter is superficial (she suggests Abe [...]


    12. Good semi-historical fiction about a true letter written to Lincoln by an 11 year old girl recommending he grow a beard. It's engaging enough for the kids to not feel like they are 'forced to read about history', but at the same time, it talks about not just slavery, but the underground railroad, views about the role of women at that time period, and just glimpses of everyday life during that era.


    13. This is about a little girl who wrote a letter to Abraham Lincoln when he was running for election. She told him to grow a beard and he did. He liked her for that and said she helped him win the election. I would use this in a classroom when talking about what can help influence some during an election.


    14. This book talks about Lincoln's election and how he got the great idea of growing a beard for votes from a little girl named Grace.



    15. This is a pretty good story about a girl who wrote a letter to Lincoln. I would recommend this book for 2nd and 3rd graders.
