Just a Few Words, Mr. Lincoln: The Story of the Gettysburg Address (Step into Reading)

Here is a History Reader about a great man and his famous speech. Now available in Step into Reading, the premier leveled reader line.

Abraham Lincoln was one busy man. He had a country to run. And a war to win. And a family to care for. But when it came time to honor all the soldiers who had died in the great battle of Gettysburg, President Lincoln still took time to say a few words. Two hundred and seventy-one to be exact. 

Step 4 Readers use challenging vocabulary and short paragraphs to tell exciting stories. For newly independent readers who read simple sentences with confidence.
