Overview

History comes to life for young readers as they explore an alphabet of the life and accomplishments of Benjamin Franklin. Franklin was a printer, author, inventor, musician, scientist, and politician. His life serves as a reminder that through hard work and zeal, today's children can be anything they dream to be.

Richly depicted information about this great American hero will delight readers, from B for his birth in Boston in 1706 to Q for his wise quotes in Poor Richard's Almanack. Franklin's impact on our country-his influence on the Declaration of Independence and the United States Constitution, the printing of the Pennsylvania Gazette, his experiments with electricity, and his invention of bifocals-is still felt today. In addition to the traditional facts about Franklin, this book contains lesser-known details of his work as an inventor and statesman. Beautiful illustrations and a timeline of his life set the stage for the story of the visionary renaissance man.
