Format: Paperback
Although the description says this book is for 9-12 year olds, I would put it more at a 3rd grade reading level with large print and simple sentences. My 12 year old would be offended if I assigned her this book. Although it does present good information, I'm annoyed that the author devoted space to telling us how Franklin fathered a child out of wedlock, and then shacked up with another woman and had a few more children (the woman's husband had left her and she didn't know where he was so she couldn't legally get a divorce, so she couldn't marry Franklin). Is that really necessary to include in a book that only has room for the most important parts of his life - a book which is aimed at 3rd and 4th graders? There are better resources. I like Poor Richard by Dougherty. Although that book isn't one that 3rd graders could read, it's an excellent read aloud.

I bought three historical books for my 10-year old (5th grader). Since he has book reports every month, I wanted something that would be an easy read. However, this series is not for his age. The books are terrific, but my 7-year old got the most benefit from them. She is not an avid reader, however she didn't want to put them down until she finished.
