Overview

Who Was Ben Franklin? by Dennis Brindell Fradin, John O'Brien

Ben Franklin was the scientist who, with the help of a kite, discovered that lightning is electricity. He was also a statesman, an inventor, a printer, and an author-a man of such amazingly varied talents that some people claimed he had magical powers! Full of all the details kids will want to know, the true story of Benjamin Franklin is by turns sad and funny, but always honest and awe-inspiring.

This book was easy and fun, but very factual at the same time. It'd be perfect for 3rd graders and struggling readers in higher grades.
