Electric Ben: The Amazing Life and Times of Benjamin Franklin

By Robert Byrd

This nonfiction picture book expounds on the highlights of Ben Franklin’s biography, and supplements the information with sketches of major events throughout.  Benjamin Franklin was an inventor, statesman, pioneer, and generally ahead of his time in the way he thought and acted.  

A great supplement for American history and colonization, particularly in 1st grade, when History Virginia SOLs 1.2 require the study of Benjamin Franklin.

Additional material: Author’s Note, Timeline, Bibliography, and famous quotes from Ben Franklin on the front and back matter.
