Reviews - What do customers think about Who Was Ben Franklin??

Great subject for a children book.  Mar 25, 2007
Great subject for a children book. I got this series of books for my daughter and she really enjoyes reading them. Great read and educational too.

Great fun!  Feb 2, 2007
I read this book to my kids and they were completely engaged from cover to cover. Wonderful information is packed into this entertaining book with great illustrations. This book inspired several discussions and projects in our house and we all agree it is a must have for any home library.
Terrific!  May 4, 2003
I bought this book for my students reading about the American Colonies and Revolution. I didn't feel that I knew enough about Ben Franklin and needed to learn more. My students were facinated about him because he was an inventor and did the experiment with the key and the kite to learn about electricity. I learned so much from this book that I had never known before and the readabilty level is perfect for my students. I can't wait to share this book with them!
