This story of a tragically injured young silversmith who ends up hip-deep in the American Revolution is inspiring, exciting, and sad. Winner of the prestigious Newbery Award in 1944, Esther Forbes's story has lasted these 50-plus years by including adventure, loss, courage, and history in a wonderfully written, very dramatic package. It's probably not great for little guys but mature 11-year-olds or older will find it a great adventure. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Experience the time period where such things happen such as the Boston Massacre, the Boston Tea Party, and Paul Revere's ride, along with the the infamous day in April, when the war began.
I have read many books aloud to my boys but I think this has been their favorite. It is well written, extremely informative, exciting and inspiring. We live in Massachusetts so the places mentioned in Johnny Tremain are local to us and reading about them and then visiting makes history come alive for my children. They beg me to read "one more chapter, pleeeease". Love it!
I thoroughly recommend this book to homeschooling families. It's a classic.
1770s, Johnny Tremain has been apprenticed to a silversmith in Boston. He meets John Hancock, Paul Revere, Dr. Warren, Colonel Smith, and many other Whigs and Tories. He is close-by during meetings, the Boston Tea Party, Boston Massacre, Christ Church lit by two lanterns, Shot Heard Round the World, and so on.
The story is well-written and factual, 7th graders would not be interested otherwise.
