Home Esther Forbes Johnny Tremain. In the middle of that comes the most unlikely book-unlikely because it is astounding that it was ever written or published. Esther Forbes was a historian, not a novelist-certainly not a novelist for young readers. In the year that Johnny Tremain was published-1943-she had won the Pulitzer Prize for Paul Revere and the World He Lived In (1942), but that was a historical work for an adult audience. Now she was using what she had learned in that book to try her hand at a story about a young boy growing up in Boston during the Revolutionary War.

Johnny Tremain, a young apprentice silversmith, is caught up in the danger and excitement of 1775 Boston, just before the Revolutionary War. But even more gripping than living through the drama of Revolutionary Boston is the important discovery Johnny makes in his own life.

Johnny, a silversmith's apprentice, has his hand maimed by hot silver in an accident and must then find a new profession. Extension activity for Johnny Tremain by Esther Forbes.

FOR USE IN SCHOOLS AND LIBRARIES ONLY. A young apprentice silversmith growing up in Boston during the Revolutionary War becomes involved with such patriots as Hancock, Otis, and Samuel Adams.

My son needed a historical fiction book for a middle school class. I remembered this from my childhood classes and remembered I really liked it. As my son started it, he had a hard time getting used to reading the "older" English. I told him that he would get used to it as he read and it would read faster. He trusted me and kept reading. Once he got used to the format of the writing, he LOVED it and could not put it down. He liked that the reader got to meet many famous people through Johnny Tremain's experiences and see a possible way that the participants in the American Revolution could have thought and acted.
I love how the story ties in with real history. Getting to see and be introduced to such people as Paul Revere, Sam And John Adams, John Hancock, and more. Reading this helps a child to get an idea of the emotion and tension that was felt by the people at that time.
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.
Ms. Forbes writes with a gift for characterization and intertwining of setting and historic action. Social Studies teachers could include this fictional account of a life lived and affected by events leading up to America's Revolutionary War. Every character is well-rounded and develops as the tale unfolds in a relentless series of dramatic plot events. For literature teachers examining Author's Craft, this is the book. Every page is jammed-packed with figurative language, the rule of three, character and plot development. foreshadowing, flashback - you name it - Ms. Forbes uses it. The book was published as America fought WWII and the novel's themes are as relevant today as when the book was published: the nation is only as strong as each individual, character is everything, life is hard, sacrifice is more than a word, cunning and craftiness are necessary lifeskills, and more. Even the least character in this novel plays a starring and highly inspiring example of human pathos: Pumpkin. If you've never read Johnny Tremain, it's well worth the time.
I first read Johnny Tremain when I was about twelve. I loved it then and I still love it today. The character development of Johnny is excellent. While he changes quite a bit over the course of the book, he doesn’t change so much as to be unbelievable. The descriptions of the goings on in Boston are exciting. I highly recommend reading it to anyone interested in or studying the time just prior to Lexington and Concord.
To my shame I only knew this story via the Disney film. The book itself is excellent; a wonderful reading experience for young people (and not so young!) who want a sane and scholarly glimpse of life in pre-revolutionary Boston.
The amazing thing is that I and my family all knew the author's family, Esther Forbes sisters both lived in my home town. Her brother- in- law took a portrait of me as a child (and won a first prize with it!) "Johnny Tremain" is an excellent companion read for a youngster who's parent(s) are reading her magnificent work, "Paul Revere and the World He Lived In." For the larger work she received the Pulizter; for the smaller one, the Newberry Award.
I bought this book as a birthday present for my grandniece who lives near Boston and has the imagination to appreciate exploring Boston's "Freedom Trail." I think it well may be a family affair this summer!
I hope Amazon continues to carry these classics. We need them now, perhaps especially now!
I suppose I had read other history books before I read this book at age 12. However, this is the book that hooked me on history.

Our media, books, television, films, are full of the American Revolution and its heroes and heroines now, but back in 1952, things were pretty quiet on the American History front. We were making our own history with WWII, the Marshall Plan, the Korean Conflict, the red scare et al. In spite of all that, this book set me on fire. I wanted to know more about the foundations of our country, and I went on to read everything I could set my hands to. I am still doing it, but that is another story.

"Johnny Tremain" is still a wonderful book. It tells the story of a teenaged apprentice who learns the hard way what is his real value to his country. Of course, you can't mention silver and the Revolution without bringing Paul Revere into the story. He and many other well known heroes are brought into the story along with the everyday people whose names never make the history books, but who are the real builders and heroes of any tale like this.

Read this book - I've read it a couple of times. Now I am buying a copy for my grandchildren who are just about the age I was when I first opened its pages.
When I was very small, I watched the Disney movie version of Johnny Tremain and the single memory that stands out in my mind is the tune from the song, "The Sons of Liberty." Now that I am an adult and study the American Revolution for my own historical fiction books, I decided it was time to read the original book called Johnny Tremain written in 1943 by Esther Forbes. I'm so glad that I did.
Although it is considered a novel for young adults, this older adult reader was highly caught up in the story about the young, pompous, and very talented silversmith who had his whole future changed in an instant when a work accident burned his hand. His entire life's work came to a screeching halt. His transformation from braggadocio boy to patriotic spy was a realistic journey that taught me much about life in Boston just before the American Revolution.
Forbes' characters are enchanting even when they are annoying, and this reader grew to appreciate all the hard-earned lessons in life that transformed Johnny into a mature, likeable fellow. Highly recommend!
I wish new large print books had the margins and white space this old book has! It serves the purpose admirably, as my vision-challenged child can actually see this one well enough to read it. (I can’t count the number of large print, no margin, no white space anywhere books have come and gone from our home unread).
