Wendy's World- Meet Mr. Lincoln
By Jane Runyon

1     It was a rainy day. Wendy, Tim, and Tess were playing in Wendy's attic. It was cozy and warm there. They could hear the rain on the roof. The sound made the children dreamy. They had been playing board games. Now they were just talking.
2     "I just read a good book," said Tess. "It was all about Alexander Graham Bell. He invented the telephone."
3     "I just read a book about Babe Ruth," said Tim. "He was a great baseball player."
4     "What would you want to ask Mr. Bell or Babe Ruth if you could?" asked Wendy.
5     "I would like to ask Mr. Bell if he knew he had invented an important machine," answered Tess.
6     "I would ask Babe Ruth how it felt to hit so many home runs," answered Tim.
7     "I think I would like to talk to Abraham Lincoln," said Wendy. "He was a great president. People still love him."
8     Wendy didn't realize what she was doing. She had picked up a pair of dice. They had used them in their last game. She had forgotten that they were magic dice. Would she remember before she set the three on a new adventure?
9     "Abraham Lincoln was president during the Civil War. It must have been hard for him. I wish we could have been there to help him."
10     The children didn't realize what Wendy had said. They were whisked away to Washington, D.C. It was not the Washington you would see today. Horses and wagons crowded the streets. Soldiers walked on the sidewalks. Ladies had on long dresses. Children played with wooden hoops and jump ropes.
11     The children looked around them. They saw a building across the street. They had only seen it in history books. It was the White House. The children walked over to the guard at the gate. The soldier barely looked at them before saying, "You're late. The president is expecting you. Hurry on in."
12     The children walked quickly in the front door. They were escorted upstairs to the president's living quarters. They peeked through an open door. "Come in," said a soft voice from behind the door. "It's good to see you. I thought you might not make it in time."
13     The children stared. This was a face they had only seen in pictures. It was truly Abraham Lincoln.
14     "H-H-Hello, Mr. Lincoln," the children stammered together.
