This Read Aloud Story is a narrative set in 1819 - the year Abe was 10 years old and his mother dies. Abe's father travels in the winter to Kentucky to find a new wife. Historically, the information is true - Abe and his sister Sarah stayed on the farm alone and waited for their father to return. The story takes about 10 minutes to read aloud and will give a glimpse of Abe's early years and how learning to read was his pathway to an extraordinary life.
Also included are discussion questions, facts about Abe and two coloring sheets. Please leave a comment at Lisa's Mix- Three to Six!
