Parents need to know that Abe Lincoln's Dream, by Lane Smith, the author of Grandpa Green, is best appreciated by readers who know a little bit about the 16th president. If your child isn't aware of the trials and tribulations of Lincoln's time, you may want to talk about him before reading the book, or discuss his legacy afterward and then read it through again. It also might be helpful to first read the afterword, which speaks of the dream Lincoln reportedly had the night before he was killed and explains about the presidential pets that regarded the Lincoln Bedroom oddly. Parents should be prepared for questions about the Civil War, slavery, and Lincoln's assassination.
