VOYAGES: REMINISCENCES OF YOUNG ABE LINCOLN seemed particularly appropriate on this historic day given Obama's interest in our 16th President. Neil Waldman uses some of Lincoln's words and some of his own to describe Lincoln's literal and figurative journeys toward Emancipation of the slaves. Lincoln's words are set off in a different color and font so the reader will be able to distinguish clearly between the two sets of words. Simple. Evocative. Perfect for today. (Calkins Creek, 2009)
ETA: Here is the cover of WELL DEFINED that ended up in my email because the lovely and talented Sara Holbrook sent her own email to the author/poet Michael Salinger who then sent me the JPEG. Nice to have friends, huh?
