Review: Ben Franklin's Almanac by Candace Fleming, , is a biography all about Benjamin Franklin.
Blurb: This is a good example of the genre because of the real account of ben Franklins life that is being told. The author was well researched and used factual information to write her story. I would use this in my classroom for a social studies lesson/project.
Quote: “The news, when it reaches London, deeply disturbs Ben.“

“Franklin wanted to know how everything worked.”

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.

my favorite part was about Paul and how his ears were ruined from ringing the bell. so then he was screaming about underwear and everyones faces in the illustrations were hilarious

I would read this book to second graders and up when giving a little history lesson on people who had a huge impact on shaping America. It is a silly, yet informative book on US history that has beautiful illustrations. Definitely love this book and would use it inside of my classroom!

This is a historical fiction book about John Hancock, Paul Revere, Thomas Jefferson, Benjamin Franklin & George Washington. It is about them as young kids. This book describes why each of those men are important, but in a way that young children can understand. It is a simple read. The book tells a good story and accurately depicts what happened in real life with a few fictional facts added. It is a great read for young kids about history.
