Reviews for Ben Franklin's Glass Armonica
RatingComments
5Did you know Franklin invented a musical instrument that both Mozart and Beethoven composed music for? Franklin created the instrument by using different sized glass bowls laid on their sides. Think of running your finger around the rim of a crystal glass and you'll get the idea behind Franklin's Armonica.

Stevens explains why Franklin developed the armonica. She then describes how the armonica was built. She also writes about its popularity in Europe. I love the focus on such an obscure detail from Franklin's life!
