This book was okay. The information was good, but it was a lot. It didn‘t really pull me in or keep me interested. I feel like there are better ways to teach children about Ben Franklin.

Electric Ben by Robert Byrd is a biography about Benjamin Franklin. It was published in 2012. This book is a super in depth biography on Benjamin Franklin. It starts from birth, goes into detail about his childhood, all of his inventions, his family and his death. It is super long and I don‘t think I would ever want to read the whole thing. Details are good, but this is a lot.

Too lengthy of a book for early childhood students but the pictures brighten up and it has a lot of historical details

2012, biography. Lengthy book telling about the story of Benjamin franklins life. A lot of words on the pages but the pictures are bright and beautifully drawn. Tells about historical events such as wars and fighting for independence
