Now & Ben: The Modern Inventions of Benjamin Franklin

by Gene Barretta


Quick Overview

In this informative book, the author brings Benjamin Franklin's genius to life by giving a detailed look at Franklin's many inventions, from the lightning rod to his concept of daylight savings time.


What would you do if you lived in a community without a library, hospital, post office, or fire department? If you were Benjamin Franklin, you'd set up these organizations yourself. Franklin also designed the lightning rod, suggested the idea of daylight saving time, invented bifocals and the odometer--all inspired by his common sense and intelligence. Size 0.1" H x 9.7" L x 7.8" W, 40 pages
