What's the Big Idea, Ben Franklin?
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.
It was available from: Book depository, Fishpond, Amazon
