Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

What would you do if you lived in a community without a library, hospital, post office, or fire department? If you were Benjamin Franklin, youd set up these organizations yourself. Franklin also designed the lightning rod, suggested the idea of daylight saving time, invented bifocals and the odometer—all inspired by his common sense and intelligence.

Synopsis:

Biography and history come to life in this celebration of the inventions and ideas of Benjamin Franklin and how theyve stood the test of time.
