    "A Quick Look at Benjamin Franklin's Life"

    “Franklin: A Life of Brilliance” provides a very high-level overview of Benjamin Franklin's life. It discusses his family, including the fact that his father had 17 children with his two wives. It briefly discusses Franklin's career as a printer and writer, his political contributions, and his work as an inventor.

    The story is simple (and sometimes repetitive), yet it provides the listener major highlights and accomplishments of Franklin's life which could be used as springboards for additional research.

    “Franklin: A Life of Brilliance” is probably best suited for young listeners or for those who know nothing about Benjamin Franklin. It is a quick listen from which the listener is sure to learn something new.
