Sam the Minuteman (I Can Read Books: Level 3)by Nathaniel Benchley
Synopses & Reviews
"Get your gun!" Sam's father said. "The British soldiers are coming this way!" Sam's father was a Minuteman. Sam was ready in a minute.
Father and son rushed to the village green. Other Minutemen were already there. Through the long night they waited and waited. Then, at dawn, the soldiers came!
In this exciting I Can Read Book, Nathaniel Benchly recreates what it must have been like for a young boy to fight in the Battle of Lexington. Arnold Lobel's vivid pictures give a poignant reality to the famous battle that marked the beginning of the American Revolution.
New York Times Outstanding Book of the Year
The opening of the American Revolution, as a young boy might have experienced it, is dramatized in ‘the best of the season’s easy-to-read books. Much is packed into this brief history.’—SLJ.
Outstanding Children's Books of 1969 (NYT)
