Only that a man can stand up...
Not only does Johnny Tremain teach students about the Revolutionary War, it also teaches them about character development, both in literature and in life. As Johnny encounters the faces and foundations of the revolution, readers must consider how they would act in our nation's fight for freedom.

What families are saying:
"...a great choice as a read-aloud with Foundations students...Johnny Tremain encourages us to become better. We empathize with Johnny, but also see his failings. We put this to work in our own lives, recognizing our hubris; identifying areas in which we need to strengthen integrity; or perhaps realizing we need to work towards goals that are bigger than 'us'." —Kate Deddens, Writers Circle
