Title: A Book About Benjamin FranklinA Book About Benjamin Franklin
Author: Ruth Belov Gross
Illustrator: J. B. Handelsman
Pages: 61
Reading Level: 7-10
Star Rating: ★★★

So I’ve reviewed what – eight books about Benjamin Franklin? Six? Seven? I don’t know. But here’s another one for ya.

This book is pretty short, and – while it covers important points in Franklin’s life – it leaves out a lot of the parts that help us to really understand who Ben Franklin was. Part of this is probably because Franklin lived such an unusually full life that it’s hard to capture the energy of it in sixty pages.

Conclusion. Good for very beginner students – readers not much more advanced would do better reading The Story of Benjamin Franklin, and readers even a little more advanced, Ben Franklin of Old Philadelphia.
