Barretta, Gene Lincoln and Kennedy: a pair to compare. PICTURE BOOK. Henry Holt (Macmillan), 2016. $17.
Baretta skillfully compares and contrasts the lives, presidencies, and legacies of Lincoln and Kennedy. I would love this book to be in any school and it would be an excellent resource for every government or American History teacher. This was actually a lesson that I was taught when working towards my teaching credential, but it is a great one to have as a resource. A clever teacher could also mimic the information, but have the students do their own research with this comparison as the target.
