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