    Story
    "Doesn't seem to work well as an audiobook."

    In our homeschool studies, we read Benjamin Franklin by D'aulaire. Then we saw this book on Audible and thought it would be a great thing to listen to, in addition to that book.

    It's not an compelling listen - jumps quickly between details without seeming to build the story in an inviting way. Detail heavy. Sounds like someone is reading a kids textbook, rather than a storybook. I wouldn't call this a living book.

    I imagine it would be a good physical book to read with illustrations and at your own pace. It doesn't seem to work well as an audiobook.
