What's the Big Idea,
Ben Franklin?


by Jean Fritz
illustrated by Margot Tomes

Another great Jean Fritz children's biography!  This Newbery Honoree really knows how to write historical biographies and books that appeal to children in the middle grades! 

We just finished reading this title, and found it to be full of interesting anecdotes and details about Franklin's life. A full review will be coming soon! :)
