Product Description

Raymond Arroyo, New York Times bestselling author and news anchor, presents a fun biography of Tad Lincoln, his relationship with his father, President Abraham Lincoln, and a story about a parent's love for their son and the wisdom of a child. Filled with humour, this historical prank will teach kids the power of curiosity, imagination, friendship, empathy, determination… and even a little mischief!

Tad Lincoln was constantly in trouble. He goes around the White House doing mischief and annoys almost everyone, except the president. However, Tad was his father's joy and consolation amid brutal war, family tragedy, and the burden of holding the nation's highest office. When Tad befriends a turkey destined for a holiday dinner, the plea to spare the animal's life teaches Abe a lesson in benevolence. It also started the tradition of pardoning presidential turkeys, a tradition that presidents continue to this day.

In The Magnificent Mischief of Tad Lincoln, readers 4-8:

  • learn about the outgoing personality of Tad Lincoln and his father, President Abe Lincoln, emphasizing the importance of family
  • see the impact of empathy and understanding on others
  • inspired by Tad's resilience and determination as he overcomes challenges in learning to read and dealing with speech impediments
  • enjoy Tad's playful and adventurous spirit, encouraging children to embrace curiosity, explore new ideas, and make a difference in the lives of others by being themselves

The Magnificent Mischief of Tad Lincoln includes:

  • a list of annotated resources
  • a fun history lesson about a favorite holiday tradition
  • Vivid illustrations by artist Jacqui Davis
  • An author's note from Raymond Arroyo, New York Times bestselling author of The Spider Who Saved Christmas
