Childhood Memories of President Abraham Lincoln

This presentation is for kids, preschool through 3rd grade. Some of Abraham Lincoln’s greatest memories and life adventures come from his childhood. In this presentation he shares his extraordinary boyhood recollections: working and playing on his parents farm in Kentucky; learning to read in a log schoolhouse; journeying by wagon to a new home in Indiana; borrowing books from neighboring farmers; and an eye-opening journey down the Mississippi by raft. As an adult, Mr. Lincoln enjoyed times spent with his own children as well as well as seeing young people on his walks through Springfield. This presentation helps humanize a historic icon—and remind kids that they too are part of history’s great journey.
