Benjamin Franklin (In Their Own Words) Reviews

    A sanitized children's book. The description of his experiments in electricity were great, though. He could have easily been killed long before his role in the Revolution due to his scientific dabbling. lol Interesting points: As postmaster for the colonies, traveling relentlessly and organizing the routes, he did the real work at the most basic level of uniting what would become a new country. He was the glue, binding all the people together.

    I loved this auto biography because Ben told his life so good it was like i was there almost just watching every step of his life go,it even gave you a little info on the war back then so you pretty much just learned about Benjamin Franklin and the civil war just by reading that great novel about Benjamin Franklin.

    I read this so I could do an essay for school. It was certainly a quick read, but it was also the best biography I've ever read. That might be because it's for grade school kids though. In other words, it's great for light papers and grade school kids.

    The only thing I didn't enjoy about this book was that the authors left out some of the emotion of Ben Franklin. For example, his wife had a stroke and died while he was living overseas. They wrote nothing of his reaction to the event making him seem heartless--which I doubt was the case.

    Quick and easy read. Read this for Library Bingo, the adult summer reading program. Requires a biography/autobiography/memoir. Although I lived in Philly for some time, was a Free Library Card Holder, enjoyed the history, I still learned a lot about Mr. Franklin I never would have guessed.

    This chapter book tells about Benjamin Franklin's life story. This also tells about his newspaper articles and personal memories. I think this is a very factual book for students to pick up many facts about Benjamin Franklin.
