Monument Maker: Daniel Chester French – Children’s History Book Review

Monument Maker

by: Linda Booth Sweeney

This new release book is the perfect history lesson and fascinating biography of Daniel Chester French, the sculptor who created the Lincoln Memorial. Daniel was just a farm boy until creation of the Lincoln Memorial, so perhaps your children know of the memorial but do they know Daniel Chester French?

Dan taught himself to sculpt and launched his career with the famous Minuteman Statue in his hometown of Concord, Massachusetts.  Now history, of a man assassinated, lives on with a rich history non-fiction story for children and how you never know when your gift will become something this amazing. After all, he was just sculpting for the love of sculpting and had no idea his masterpiece would become such a national tribute visited by so many to come.

Available to pre-order on Amazon with a September 3, 2019 release date. Also, more at Tilbury House Publishers.

Love that you picked out one of the major themes of this book: Know what you love. Make (or do) what you love. And of course, work very hard at it too! Thank you for this lovely review.
