好 评:



Sam's family lives on a farm in Lexington, Mass.; one night his father wakes him up and tells him to get his gun, because the British are coming. "Benchley's expressive words and Lobel's vivid drawings portray a realistic story," PW wrote.


"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.
