With President’s Day recently we read a book given to me by Inspiring The American Dream called Abrahams Journey: A Celebration of the American Dream.
This book is about a boy named Abraham and living through the depression and his parents have both lost their jobs and can’t afford gifts. He takes a journey through cyberspace with a man he meets (Abraham Lincoln). Together both Abrahams travel through time (not historically accurate) and meet people that end up helping Abraham to raise money to buy gifts for his family. In the end they are even able to donate some money to the needy.
The book talks a lot about the American Dream, and what it means. This book did keep it fairly simple and had it only evolve around Christmas. It wasn’t historically accurate as you meet two people from two different time periods at the same time. However that only bothered me slightly since time traveling through cyber space isn’t possible to begin with. I also thought this book would be more able the journey of Abraham Lincoln throughout his life. Just goes to show you, you can’t judge a book by it’s cover!
I did appreciate how it portrayed the American Dream as to taking care of your family and still be able to be charitable. I also liked how in the back of the book are short biographies on the 7 famous people mentioned throughout the book.
This book was a short quick read for us. We really liked the stunning pictures throughout.
The paperback version of this book sales for $14.99 with the Kindle version being $9.99
