Playmation with Alexander and Benjamin was created in 2000 as a "homemade" Christmas gift for two boys named Alexander and Benjamin. Since then, "this gift" has turned into a reality and is accomplishing what its original creation intended it to be: FUN! Playmation with Alexander and Benjamin is a historical fiction book for children, that is separate, from all others...because Alex and Ben (and the reader) actually ask interesting questions as they journey along on their time traveling adventures. Historical characters give Alexander and Ben answers to their questions. These questions are a springboard for children and their parents to inspire discussions about historical figures and historical events that have impacted the present day.
