Now & Ben

Now and Ben is a wonderful non fiction resource about the inventions of Ben and “then” (the word “then” has been cleverly replaced with its rhyme “Ben,” throughout the book).
It’s amazing how many inventions we still use today were the brainchild of Benjamin Franklin; political cartoons, bifocals, lightning rods, the first concepts of the postal service...just to make a few.
The text is displayed in manageable and digestible chunks, each page with colorful, engaging illustrations to show the contrast of Ben’s invention then and now. An interesting non fiction read about a founding father.
