Description

Summary: Benjamin Franklin is an influential figure, even to very young people. Young people like Henry, for example, who wish to help their families make it through rough financial times. This book, a coming-of-age novel to its core, follows Henry on his quest to save his family from a dishonorable man's steep loan to them through hard work and thrift. Oh my goodness. This was amazing. I really loved this book. Perhaps I am the kind of woman who simply loves the values taught in juvenile literature from "way back in the day," but this really is quite an amazing book. I learned a lot as I read and I took all sorts of notes as I read. This book is an incredible way to teach amazing lessons that most students do not receive, such as frugality, honesty, the way life is not necessarily fair but is still good, how to recognize good company from bad, and helping those you love in the ways they need. It is an empowering book in all the right ways. Honestly, this book pushes young people to become valuable citizens and upstanding people without pushing it down anyone's throat. This truly was a joy to read. It was so simple, yet so complex.show more
