Winner of the 1944 Newbery Medal, the author of Johnny Tremain combines both history and remarkable storytelling to create a book that is both historically significant as well as entertaining. Throughout the years Johnny Tremain has remained an essential classroom read for educators looking to immerse students in the American Revolutionary War.
This story centers around 14-year-old Johnny Tremain, who is excited about his apprenticeship as a silversmith and the secure future it will bring him. However, that path is lost when Johnny injures his hand and he can no longer successfully do the work. Soon Johnny becomes immersed in the American Revolution, after taking a job as a horse-boy for the patriotic newspaper “The Boston Observer,” as well riding for the Sons of Liberty. Thanks to his involvement with both of these groups, Johnny meets the historical greats like John Hancock, Samuel Adams and Dr. Joseph Warren. He also gets first-hand experience of some of the most monumental moments in American history, like the Boston Tea Party. Though it isn’t what he had expected, Johnny is at the heart of a pivotal time in history.
