B. Franklin, Printer
Audience: 4th Grade - 8th Grade
Benjamin Franklin is probably 'America's Favorite Founding Father,' but how did he get there? David Adler draws a detailed and authentic portrait of this great man, illustrated with prints and maps from Franklin's time. When he was young, he signed his name 'B. Franklin, Printer' - that is how he most identified himself. You will learn that, not only was Franklin an inquiring scientist, inventor and statesman, but he also had a wry sense of humor, often writing sly letters to his own newspaper under a false name. You will also learn about his very interesting habits, like taking 'air baths' every day. As an original 'nerd,' he may sound like someone you know.
