Did you know Illinois was the Land of the Lincoln? When I was in school we studied about Presidents Lincoln and Washington. I can't remember if both days were holidays. I think children should learn about the presidents. If you visit my blog, please comment by telling me what you know about Lincoln.
I always loved this song. It came out when I was in third grade. I was surprised when they mentioned it in the book, The Watson's Go to Birmingham. It goes perfectly with what Byron and Kenny have to do in the story. Dad gives them chores and doesn't want to hear them complain about it! Just do it!
