Capt. By Robert Lawson!
Ben and Me is a light-hearted biography of Benjamin Franklin as told by his mouse, Amos. Perfect for kids ages 7 and older, this book will delight, entertain and educate children. Reading expert and Reading Kingdom creator, Dr. Marion Blank explains why. History is fascinating but few books in the area are written with a powerful sense of humor.
Amos is quite intelligent and he and Ben become friends and it is Amos who leads the doddering Franklin around and gives him some of his greatest ideas about electricity, a milestone in children's literature that still makes me smile with its warmth and humor. The story is narrated by Ben's pet mouse Amos who enjoys taking most of the credit for Ben's inventions. A fun way for Sunday school teachers to introduce the tender story from the book of Ruth. It was one of those books long laughed over and remembered, through the Revolution and later on his journey and stay in France.
The fact that it was first published in might account for the plethora of vocabulary words it contains. Add to cart. His last olnine work was The Big Wheel. Refresh and try again.
