    1 thought on “Abe Lincoln and the Selfie that Saved the Union

    1. I read Abe Lincoln and the Selfie That Saved the Union by David Potter with my 9-year-old daughter and she bombarded me with questions throughout. This was her first introduction to the American Civil War, and while the book doesn’t go into the causes of the war, this book served as a brief introduction to the time (1863) and places (Washington City and Gettysburg). I ended up going way beyond the scope of the book in my discussions with my daughter – and it gave me a good opportunity for me [...]

    2. This review and many more can be found on my blog: Feed Your Fiction AddictionWith Presidents’ Day being this week, it’s the perfect week to review this cute read that gives kids insight into President Lincoln and his family, along with a few other key players during the Civil War. I was excited to have my kids read this one to go along with our homeschool curriculum, and it didn’t disappoint.What Fed My Addiction:Goofy concept. The whole concept of the kids going back in time via an app o [...]

    3. I received this book through NetGalley in exchange for my honest opinion.Honestly, I didn't really enjoy the book. I will say that despite my not liking it, I do think that it is a great addition to middle grade historical fiction. Those who read The Magic Treehouse series will see many parallels, with the added modern technology twist.

    4. We listened to this during a car ride as a family, kids ages 8 and 11. They both thought it was boring. My husband and I enjoyed it for the most part but it is a little slow. We enjoyed the historical parts of the book though and there was some humor to it (not much, but some). All in all, I would say it's an okay read so I should probably give it a 2 star rating but I liked it enough to give it 3, so that's what I'm going with :)

    5. 3.5 stars. Thanks to NetGalley and Random House for the free e-book in exchange for an honest review.First of all, I would recommend reading the first book, The Left Behinds: The iPhone that Saved George Washington, before you read this one. I could have done with more elaboration on the background of the mysterious app which sends three kids back in time, their relationship, their home lives, and their previous adventure .I got the gist of the previous book, though: Three kids, who are not exac [...]

    6. Want a fun way to teach some history? This is the book you must read. Imagine three kids traveling back in time through a phone app. That is what happens to Mel, Brandon and Bev. There is a first book to this series. I will need to read it and add it to my shelves. Don’t let me misguide you with my first statement. This is one of those fun books with just enough history to make kids the inquirers we want them to be. An added bonus is the author notes at the end of the book that five you so muc [...]

    7. This is the second book in a cute series in which 3 students who had to stay at their boarding school over the holidays (thus being left behind), somehow received a time travel app on their phones (that part is probably explained in the first book), and travel through time trying to keep the bad guy (who invented the app but now wants to change history) from changing history. In this story they go to DC and try to stop the bad guy from changing the outcome of the battle of Gettysburg. Twelve yea [...]

    8. Gr 4-6 -- The Battle of Gettysburg was a dreadful day in U.S. history, but how much more dreadful would the Civil War have been if the Confederacy had won that battle? That’s what Mel and his time-traveling classmates Bev and Brandon DON’T want to find out when they find themselves in the White House on July 2, 1863. President Lincoln is in despair over a lack of intel, the generals are grumbling, and the kids are pretty sure the nefarious Things Go Wrong company is plotting to change histor [...]

    9. This was so cute. This the second book in the series so far and I can't wait to read the first one.The premise are three kids left behind at school during vacation that time travel via their iPhones and help save the past. This installment takes them to meet President Lincoln and family and the battle of Gettysburg.To further extend the fun/learning at the end of the book the author lists bibliographies for further fiction and nonfiction reading, websites to visit, and historical places and muse [...]

    10. Quick, fun read that skillfully blends sci-fi time travel with a historical setting. Kids will be entertained and absorb some American history at the same time. Wonderful series for graduates of Magic Tree House - I recommend for any school library!

    11. In all honesty I did not like this book, but that's not surprising since I'm not a big fan of reading things in big portions. I feel like there was no flow through out the whole book and most of it didn't make sense, like they were trying to rush the whole book and they had to much to rush.
