Book Review of
Ben and Me
Ever wonder where inventors get their ideas? As it turns out, the great inventor Benjamin Franklin got his best ideas from a mouse named Amos! Funny, interesting and wise, this classic tale has been a favorite for generations. Once you’ve met Amos and read his account, you’ll never think of Ben Franklin-or American history-quite the same way.
Explore this historical time period even further in this new edition of award-winning author Robert Lawson’s classic tale, with additional bonus material, including a map of Ben Franklin’s travels!
This is a fun and cute book that allows the imagination to run wild for kids. Don’t we all like to think that Benjamin Franklin had a pet mouse who influenced his daily life. 🙂 This book is written for young middle school children. While it is definitely not historical accurate, it does have a few true things about Franklin’s life and what he invented. This book does cause the readers to believe that the mouse influenced most or all of Benjamin Franklin’s inventions which we know is not true, but it makes the story fun for kids.
