Lincoln’s Playground, is a fun children’s book that promotes creativity and imagination. The protagonist to every illustration is newborn baby Lincoln. The inspiration for each illustration was inspired by Lincoln’s natural poses. The author/illustrator has removed the backgrounds on the original images of Lincoln and replaced it with a completely new illustrated environment. Each imaginative illustration has a corresponding short rhyming description. The author hopes to inspire creativity in your child by showing how much fun you can have with just a little bit of imagination. It is like a game of looking up at clouds and asking, “what do you see?” The possibilities are really endless given your imagination!
