Description
"Ben Franklin loved to swim and, at the age of eleven, he was determined to swim like a fish--fins and all. This fictional account of young Ben's earliest invention follows the budding scientist's journey as he tests and retests his swim fins. That first big splash led Ben to even more innovations and inventions. Curiosity, experimentation, and originality filled Ben's life from an early age. His inventions and innovations affected not only his world but ours. "Hide not your talents, they for use were made. What's a sun-dial in the shade!" ---Poor Richard Improved, 1750.
