In a tiny log cabin a boy listened with delight to the storytelling of his ma and pa. He traced letters in sand, snow, and dust. He borrowed books and walked miles to bring them back.
When he grew up, he became the sixteenth president of the United States. His name was Abraham Lincoln.
He loved books.
They changed his life.
