BENJAMIN FRANKLIN'S WISE WORDS reviewed on Always in the Middle

BENJAMIN FRANKLIN'S WISE WORDS
National Geographic
by K.M. Kostyal
Reviewed by Always in the Middle

Seven themed chapters contain the collection of quotes: TRANQUILITY, INDUSTRY, ORDER, HUMILITY, RESOLUTION, SINCERITY, and MODERATION. Each quote is stated on its own page in Ben’s language of the time. The quote is then rewritten in a more understanding way for kids (and adults). For example:
A SLIP OF THE FOOT YOU MAY SOON RECOVER: BUT A SLIP OF THE TONGUE YOU MAY NEVER GET OVER.
TRANSLATION: Be careful what you say. Because once it’s said, you can’t take it back—ever.
