#QuotsyMay19 Day 13: We need to #account for both our verbosity and silence. The latter may be more difficult to rationalize, especially in the face of growing social unrest where people are morally obligated to take a stand.
This was an enjoyable book, especially if you like quotes and history. It explains some of Franklin's most famous sayings in terms that most kids today will understand and includes great historical information. The illustrations are also a lot of fun. #historynerd#youthservices#yslibrarian
