Ben and Me
By Robert Lawson
When the mouse Amos finds himself in Benjamin Franklin’s bedroom, Ben’s life is changed forever. According to the story, Amos is responsible for most of the inventor’s ideas, and for keeping Ben out of trouble!
Barbara’s Notes: Such a fun way to learn about Ben Franklin! I heartily recommend this for any study of early US history.
