Who Was Ben Franklin?, by Dennis Brindell Fradin, says that even if you have had sad times, you can still live an accomplished life. Benjamin Franklin was born in 1706 at Boston, Massachusetts, died in 1790, and had a miserable childhood. When Benjamin was still a teenager, he was an apprentice at his brother’s printing shop. His brother, however, was cruel to him, and he didn’t like his work. However, he moved to Pennslyvania and started a new life. He became a founding father of the U.S.A, and one of the best American inventors of all time. I recommend this biography for boys and girls, grades third to fifth.

When Ben was young , his father wanted him to be an apprentice at a job . But Ben wanted to be paid . so when Ben got a bit older he finally got to work with his brother .it still wasn't as good as he wanted but it was ok. As been got older he tried to invent things. And when Ben was older( and had a son )one day during a storm him and his son went out and tried to catch lightning in a bottle. I think this was a good book!I recommend this book to all ages . I rate this book 4/5 stars 😁 -Pizzagirl7💋

one of the most brilliant founding fathers and is on the 100 dollar bill

One cool man ^_^

He made lectrisatie

This book is good for some one that needs a lot of information. It has specific dates and specific events in his life. It tells all about his inventions and adventures he went on around the world.

This man was a crazy inventor. Who would think of flying a kite during a lightning storm. He also signed the Declaration of Declaration of Independence
