Ruth Ashby writes a delightful account of the life of Ben Franklin. She weaves the events of his early life into the details of his growing up and becoming an adult that would influence the world. Her style is easy to read and she does a superb job of incorporating the historical information pertinent to the time.
I particularly like the part at the end of the book that is set up to focus on the accomplishments of Mr. Franklin through the different areas that he pursued. Interesting anecdotal stories fill the pages and keep the story interesting and compelling to read. Young readers will learn history. (reviewed by C.Delorge)
