Lincoln is never afraid to ask a question. He asks and asks and never stops asking until his understanding is complete. Lincoln asks so many questions that if you didn't know better, you would think Lincoln was missing a few of his logs, which is absolutely not true. Lincoln is one of the brightest boys around.
Some might find Lincoln's questions irritating. A principal or any other person observing might think the teacher is wasting too much time on Lincoln at the expense of the other students. This is absolutely not true. What Lincoln questions is also being questioned by at least a half a dozen other kids. The other kids are grateful for Lincoln's ability to ask whatever is on his mind, to ask what they are afraid or to shy to ask.
At the end of the semester we are going to have a "thank Lincoln party." Many of the kids will owe their success to his constant questions.
