Follow an errand boy through colonial Boston as he spreads word of rebellion.

It’s December 16, 1773, and Boston is about to explode! King George has decided to tax the colonists’ tea. The Patriots have had enough. Ethan, the printer’s errand boy, is running through town to deliver a message about an important meeting. As he stops along his route at the bakery, the schoolhouse, the tavern, and more readers learn about the occupations of colonial workers and their differing opinions about living under Britain’s rule. This fascinating book is like a field trip to a living history village.

* “Winter’s strong, moving text is supported by a thoughtful design that incorporates the look of historical papers, and rich paintings capture the individuals and their circumstances as well as what’s at stake.”—Booklist, starred review

Super 5th Grade Resource! When needing a user-friendly and enjoyable Colonial Boston occupations resource, this is a great find! Interwoven in the prose are subtle messages about the undercurrents of those turbulent times in Boston, spoken by the characters whose jobs you learn about. Colorful and clear illustrations enhance this knowledge. I first located it in our school library, but I knew I immediately wanted my own copy!

A delight History is history the illustrations make it come to life. Illustrator Larry Day known for his many ads, is so superb in these kids books.

Quick History Read This is a wonderful find. The information is enough to hook a kid into reading quick history, but not enough to fill an essay. The illustrations are great
