Mr. Lincoln's Way
Mr. Lincoln's Way by Patricia Polacco.
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 from himself.
But Mr. Lincoln knows that Eugene isn’t really bad—-he’s just repeating things he’s heard at home. Can the principal find away to get through to “Mean Gene” and show him that the differences between people are what make them special??
