Ben Franklin's Almanac by Candace Fleming.
Atheneum Books for Young Readers/Simon & Schuster Children's Publishing: NY, 2003.

The layout of this book is great. It has the look of Franklin's Poor Richard's Almanack. It starts with a timeline for Ben's life, and then each article is an interesting part of Franklin's life. The illustrations are period drawings, and there are engaging tidbits that are unusual in children's biographies. It's not only a fascinating portrayal of Ben Franklin but also a unique peek at the beginning of our country.
