A few weeks ago the children had the day off from school and we were looking for something a bit out of the ordinary to do. We ended up going with another family to the Franklin Institute. I could hardly believe that we haven't frequented the place because it was amazing! We seriously loved all the exhibits.
When we got home we read the book, Now and Ben: The Modern Inventions of Benjamin Franklin by Gene Baretta. I think this is a must read because it highlights, in a interesting and witty way, the extraordinary contributions that Ben Franklin made to society. The illustrations are bright, cheery and engaging as well. It's also a great book to use to compare and contrast how much- or how little- things have changed over the years. Quite frankly (pun intended), I'm astounded at all that this man invented that is still in use today!
Hello! I'm Anna and I'm a stay at home mom of two fabulous children and wife of one fabulous guy! I blog about my family, my life and my favorite things. I love many things, but I am especially fond of children's books, parties (children's and otherwise), traditions, good food, holidays, clothes, party invitations, Martha and spending time with friends and family. I really strive to find the beautiful in our everyday. Oh, and I love pretty things!
