Comment: This book has already been well loved by someone else and that love shows. It MIGHT have highlighting, underlining, be missing a dust jacket, or SLIGHT water damage, but over-all itâ?TMs still a good book at a great price! (if it is supposed to contain a CD or access code, that may be missing)

Editorial Reviews

From the Inside Flap

Benjamin Franklin was one of the busiest men in the American colonies. He was a printer, a postmaster, an inventor, a writer, and a diplomat. When the Revolutionary War began, Ben supported America in the Continental Congress. Like the clever adages from his Poor Richard?s Almanac, Ben Franklin still sets an example for Americans today.

If you've been playing Nintendo all night and watching TV all day, the pace of this book is going to seem slow in comparison. But for the serious young reader who wants to learn interesting historical facts, this is a terrific book by a terrific author in a terrific series.

Format: Paperback
Ben Franklin of Old Philadelphia is a great book for the elementary school reader. When we visit historic sites we buy books about the people, places, and/or events of the area and time in history. This was one such book. This book gives the reader a good overview of the life of Ben Franklin, each chapter dealing with a different aspect of his life. It covers the major points without going into details that distract the young reader from the story of Benjamin Franklin's amazing life, highlighting some of his greatest accomplishments. As a mother and a historian, I highly recommend this book for the yound reader.

Landmark books are always great and this is no exception. Written by an excellent author, this is a good book for young people to learn about Ben Frankliin. Unfortuntely, children today seem to think that everything has to have a fun value! This book may not be "fun" in that sense, but it is a very interesting book about a very interesting person. It may not be politically correct by today's standards, but it is good solid history, a worthy book.

My ten year old son loves this book. He's amazed and excited about all of Ben Franklin's inventions and ideas; especially the ones that were for the better of the community. I highly recommend this book for a great look back at the history and contributions of Ben Franklin.
