Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Trina Heidt
Mr. Caruthers' social studies class is about to undertake the fascinating task of learning about one of America's most recognizable historical figures: Benjamin Franklin. The only problem is that when they open their books to begin, he is not there, not anywhere. Abigail, Jacob, Zack, and Bo know that the evil Babs McGee is behind this history hiccup and it is up to them to make it right. They must use Mr. Caruthers' time travel device and travel back through history to try to return things to normal. When they first arrive in the past, in Philadelphia in 1776, they cannot find Ben anywhere. They soon discover that Babs has beaten them there and to every important event in Ben's life and claimed his work as her own. Working together, they continue to time travel backwards through Ben's life to try to find pivotal moments where they can beat Babs McGee and convince young Ben of what his life's path should be. This is a lighthearted but informational look at a very important historical figure and could easily be used as an introduction to a unit study. It could also very well motivate the unmotivated or be included as an easy-to-read resource in a unit study. The book includes a letter to the readers from the authors distinguishing fact from fiction and a Benjamin Franklin time line. Part of the "Blast to the Past" series.

    This is why you should read Blast to the past: Ben Franklin fam

    This is why you should read Blast to the past: Ben Franklin fame. There are 4 kids on an adventure to save Ben franklins fame. I think you should read Ben franklins fame because it has satisfactory details. You should read the book because most of the story takes place in 1776. This book is also great because it has good word choice. It’s also good because it has a problem Babes Magee is trying to steal Ben Franklins fame. It's great   because the setting is always changing. If you like historical fiction you’ll love this book. If you read this book you’ll never be able to put it down its so good. I think you should read this book because it has satisfactory details. This is why I think you should read Blast to the past Ben Franklins Fame.
