What's the big idea Ben Franklin?
Author: Jean Fritz
This is a well written story of Benjamin Franklin. It presents Benjamin Franklin from a the day he was born to the day he dies. It is really good to see these famous people as human. He was once a little child just like any of us. He managed to achieve so much because he was willing to put his ideas into action. An ambassador, a printer, an almanac maker a politician and even a vegetarian for a time. He was also a great inventor. I like the way this book tells history beyond the textbooks. It tells of Ben Franklin the inventor and person.
This book is recommended for 8-12 year olds and is presented in a lovely picture book format.
