Read aloud with my son This series, although dated, kept my son s interest and he enjoyed reading about what life was like long ago He now wants to follow up with other children s books about Benjamin Franklin to learn about his accomplishments as an adult. This book, part of the series Childhood of Famous Americans, is a simple story about Benjamin Franklin when he was a young boy His family, led by his candle maker father, is a large one without a lot of money, but is portrayed as loving and warm We learn that Benjamin was very bright when he was young, and his family didn t have a lot of money and couldn t afford to send him to school until his father got a contract to sell candles to the city He is sent to a couple different schools, has all sorts of simple adventures and is even almost kidnapped by a sailor The humor and scary parts are all very tame and suitable for a very young reader or listener.My one complaint is that, in simplifying this story for a young audience, the author made the writing very monotonous all of the sentences seem to be of the same length, and paragraphs are one or two sentences long This is probably appropriate for a young reader getting used to chapter books, but it makes for a rather sleep inducing read aloud story.But the information about Benjamin Franklin when he was young is interesting, and the author manages to convey humor and an appreciation for Franklin s wits.
