Although written and offered as a children's audiobook, this Lincoln biography will appeal to everyone from preteens to seniors. For the first few minutes it seems juvenile, but soon the narrator catches your heart with his mild impersonations and attractive way of bringing language to life. Narrator Kevin Pariseau's adaptation of his personality to the biography of an esteemed president will keep the attention of listeners of all ages. He showcases the Great Emancipator's knack for telling jokes and stories to make a point. He enhances the vignettes of Lincoln's life that show his humility, ambition, and leadership into lessons anyone could bear being reminded of. No matter how much one knows about Lincoln, this uncomplicated approach to his achievements should not be underestimated. J.A.H. © AudioFile 2009, Portland, Maine [Published: FEBRUARY 2009]
