About the Author:

Did you ever wonder what would happen if you took the road less traveled by? This was a question I often asked myself. In 1992, I decided to head down a new highway. I left my lovely job in education and became a children’s book author. In August of 1994, the first contract call came. Now 22 books later the days flash by with writing, researching, revising, submitting, rejections (Yes, published authors still get them), email, school visits, conference presentations, and book signings.My husband Earl encourages, edits, advises, takes pictures, helps with research , updates my website which he designed, and prints out maps to schools and bookstores. I love meeting my readers. And I look forward to hearing from you. Visit my website at www.kaywinters.com

A Few Reviews:

Using simple language, bare-bones details, and uncluttered illustrations, Winters introduces America’s sixteenth president. She recounts events from Lincoln’s childhood in Kentucky and Indiana and his young adulthood in New Salem, Illinois. The engaging narrative emphasizes Lincoln’s love of books and reading, which flourished despite his lack of formal education. Carpenter’s oil-on-canvas illustrations include many details of pioneer life and focus on Lincoln’s humble beginnings. An author’s note filling in some information omitted from the story is appended. – Booklist

“An absolutely wonderfully and beautifully written book! It’s inspiring and heart warming! My 7 year old son loves this book! This book sends the ultimate message about a boy who’s love for reading, passion for learning and a boy that overcomes adversity to become our president! A boy driven by his love for books and learning! What a wonderful message for young boys! They will love this book!”
