"Lincoln and Kennedy don't immediately lend themselves easily to a side-by-side picture-book analysis. Kudos to Barretta, then, who is stunningly successful at creating such a book by pausing at key moments of each man's life to see what he's facing and enriching the biography of both by comparison. . .
this will obviously catch the eye of social-studies teachers, but the lively illustrations and inviting approach will entice independent readers as well"--The Bulletin

"The text reads easily, but it's the cartoonish illustrations--big, bold, and set in cleverly designed pages--that will immediately grab kids' attention. . . Engaging"--Booklist

"Lincoln and Kennedy is a marvelously original and important book. I can't think of a better way to interest young readers in American history." --Thomas Fleming, author of Liberty! The American Revolution
