DESCRIPTION: “The time is February 12, 1809. The place is a small log cabin in Kentucky. Dennis looks down at the new baby. ‘Cousin Nancy,’ he says, ‘will Abe ever grow to be as big as me?’
‘Bigger than you are now, Dennis.’ the baby’s mother tells him.
She looks down at her son, ‘Abe Lincoln,’ she whispers. ‘You are going to grow-and grow-and grow!'” (from the back cover)
