I like to use this wonderful little book as a supplemental when teaching early American History to the young ones. No book can cover it all and there are plenty out there that cover Revolutionary America during this era. After the children get an overall view of what is happening (other books and lecture), it is rather nice to have this little book, and others like it, to show that these great men were actually human and led lives much like the rest of us. For children to grow up understanding and appreciating our history, I feel this is quite important. This book helps a lot. Highly recommend this one. The illustration are quite good, the text is very readable and not at all boring.

These picture book biographies are great for lower elementary students. Big colorful pictures and packed with information. Great for colonial unit study.

1) It is a book about Benjamin Franklin growing up in life.

2) I think it is a good american revolution book.

3) it dosn't have a story element in it.

4) I gave it five stars because i passed the test with a 100%. Plus it was easy and good.

My children found this book to be interesting and informative about the life and lifestyle of Ben Franklin but a little lacking in the details of why he is important historically (Declaration of Independence, founding father, etc.). It is a small complaint perhaps, but the books in these series seem to focus on the personalities and idiosyncracies of the characters to the detriment of their accomplishments historically.

We read this book in our homeschool history class. It's great for colonial unit study. Even mom learned a few new things about Ben Franklin! How cool is that!

(1) It was about Benjamin Franklin helping his brother and,his brother found out about what he was doing when he was printing the paper. And he invented alot of stuff.

(2) It was okay but the book was to shor tans it only took me 15 minutes to read it. That's why it's okay.

(3) My story had the element irony in it because I thought that the book was going to tell about him when he was just little.

(4) I recommend this book to people who like reading Historic books and I rated it 4 stars because it was to short.
