Description


The touching story of an unforgettable school principal who truly empowers his students, from master storyteller Patricia Polacco, author of Thank You, Mr. Falker.

Mr. Lincoln is the coolest principal ever! He knows how to do everything, from jumping rope to leading nature walks. Everyone loves him . . . except for Eugene Esterhause. "Mean Gene" hates everyone who's different. He's a bully, a bad student, and he calls people awful, racist names. But Mr. Lincoln knows that Eugene isn't really bad--he's just repeating things he's heard at home. Can the principal find a way to get through to "Mean Gene" and show him that the differences between people are what make them special?

Praise for Mr. Lincoln's Way:

 
"A touching and complex story that sends a positive message to kids and creates hope for those working with kids who seem to be lost and categorized as bullies." --Children's Literature
 
"Visually appealing, with colorful, expressive illustrations that beautifully enhance the text . . . a sweet story about learning to respect oneself and others, and is well worth the reader's attention." --Kirkus Reviews
 
"This story is vintage Polacco--a multicultural neighborhood setting, a cast of believable characters (some larger than life), and a satisfying ending guaranteed to bring tears to even hard-boiled cynics . . . An excellent choice for storyhours, this should prompt some interesting discussions about bullies and their motivations." --Booklist

Polacco's signature watercolor illustrations take on springtime hues here; they're especially apparent in Mr. Lincoln's bright pink shirts and ties. An excellent choice for storyhours, this should prompt some interesting discussions about bullies and their motivations."—Booklist
