Benjamin Franklin Part I

Our museum is hosting a wonderful Benjamin Franklin exhibit. We haven't seen it yet, but we have started reading about this amazing man. Here are a some of the books we've enjoyed so far:
  • The Many Lives of Benjamin Franklin by Aliki - a cartoon book - this is where I got the idea to make our own book of Ben's sayings with our own illustrations
  • How Ben Franklin Stole the Lightning by Rosalyn Schanzer - good book with cute pictures
  • A Picture Book of Benjamin Franklin by David A Adler - we always enjoy these books
  • Now & Ben: The Modern Inventions of Benjamin Franklin by Gene Barretta - cute book that shows a lot about how the world was different in Ben Franklin's time
  • Ben Franklin and the Magic Squares by Frank Murphy - cute book about magic squares, and they're fun to play with, too!
