Ben Franklin’s Big Splash

by Barb Rosenstock
A delightful tale of a famous American as a young man and his first invention. Motivated to swim faster, young Ben observed aquatic creatures in the river near his home. Ben’s hard work and commitment to improve his swimming fins shows young readers firsthand how the scientific method and engineering design can be used to build a profoundly simple but wonderful first invention.
