School Library Journal Review

K-Gr 3-This picture-book biography (Holiday House, 1990) by David Adler presents information about Benjamin Franklin's accomplishments as a printer, an inventor, and a statesman as well as his contributions to American history. John Wallner's full-color illustrations and some background sound effects complement Patrick Collins's well-done narration. The book is read with and without page-turn signals. A wonderful resource for primary graders.-Jill Q. Altman, Saluda Primary School, SC (c) Copyright 2010. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.
