ABOUT THIS BOOK

It is time for a party to honor Daniel Chester French, the sculptor of the Lincoln
Memorial. But KC and Marshall discover that Lincoln’s thumb is missing from the
statue. Can they find the vandals before the celebration begins?

SUGGESTED ACTIVITIES

Art
Ask students to sketch a picture of a familiar object such as a plane, house, car, etc.
Then have them erase one element of that object–a wing from a plane, a door from
a house, a wheel from a car. Give each child a chunk of clay and have them sculpt
their object, making sure to leave out the missing element. Put the completed
sculptures on display and have students guess what is missing from each one!
