Abigail Adams by Jean Brown Wagoner

Childhood of Famous Americans Series

By Various Authors
Level 4

I really like this author and this series, and so do my daughters.  Forgiveness, manners, love of learning, hard work, perseverance, and good attitude are all emphasized. This series contains great writing for this reading level, using just the right amount of varied vocabulary, description, and sentence structure, while still making the story very interesting for children.
