KIRKUS REVIEW

 From an ``internationally known folk artist,'' a series of carefully composed images representing the most significant and/or best-known points in Lincoln's life. Zeldis's designs are decorative and lively, her colors vibrant--emerald, electric blue, lemon, gold, crimson, fuchsia. But the stiff forms and dour, stolidly stylized figures-- recalling traditional naive art--are distancing. Kunhardt presents the essential facts in a brief, unadorned text with sentences so short and simple that they fall like the blows of a hammer. An acceptable first biography, and interesting for the art, where funds permit. (Biography/Picture book. 5-8)
