    One thought on “George the Drummer Boy”

    1. The beginning of George the Drummer Boy starts by telling the reader about George, who was a drummer boy in the King's army. George was in Boston at the time, which was owned by England. The people in Boston were not friendly towards the King's men. Even though the people of Boston were mean, George still tried to be friendly with them. The King's men were planning a surprise attack on the people, and George's company was one of two that was chosen to carry out the attack.The book talks about wh [...]

    2. It's a pretty suitable picture book for children to learn more about American history with someone's experience. So it really is a perfect historical fiction for kids to experience the real scene in 1776. Actually this fiction mainly talks about George who is a drummer with the King's Soldiers in Boston in 1776. Unfortunately, the people of Boston don't like the soldiers, so they don't like George, which makes him unhappy. One day, George is fulfill his assignment, and he and Fred are there just [...]

    3. I was really excited to find this historical easy reader. I've read the author's other book "Sam the Minuteman", and I was thrilled that we were able to read about the same battles from a British drummer boy's perspective. I felt the author brought George's story to life very well and I am always impressed to read a story that is well told and yet easy to read. It takes a certain skill and well-chosen words to make a good-quality historical easy reader. I also liked the illustrations. They lent [...]

    4. It's written from the perspective of the British and follows George, a drummer boy, who doesn't understand much of what's going on and doesn't want to be in a battle. He just wants to get back safely to Boston. At the end of the book the author notes: "Just as it takes two sides to make a war, so there must be two stories for every battle." If that was the author's entire reason for writing this story I'm afraid it was missed, as I feel like the character and the story should have presented a st [...]

    5. Benchley's "Sam the Minuteman" tells the story of Lexington and Concord from the American point-of-view. In "George the Drummer Boy," the author writes about what the experience might have been like from the view of a British drummer boy. George and his friend are ordered into long boats one night and shipped from Boston to Charlestown, across the river. Then, they march with the regular soldiers to Lexington and Concord. George sees the brief exchange of bullets at Lexington and the fear and ch [...]

    6. This was a fantastic little book. You learn about the battles of Concord and Lexington (the beginning of the Revolution) from the perspective of an English drummer boy. For the shortness of the book it had a lot of information and was the perfect introduction for younger kids. This also led to a good discussion on 'good guys' and 'bad guys' and how sometimes it's just people on different sides.The illustrations were a bit weird, but oh well. While this is not a chapter book, the vocab and such m [...]

    7. George the Drummer Boy by Nathaniel Benchley is a historical fiction book. It is for grades 2-4. This wasn't one of my favorites. I think mostly because it is about fighting. the story is a view of two battle, Lexington and Concord. It is a view from the British side. The drummer boy George is learning about war and how to be apart of it. He doesn't understand that the people in Boston were not happy about the King's men but he still wanted to be friendly with them. There are very simple drawing [...]

    8. George The Drummer Boy written by Nathaniel Benchley and illustrated by Don Bolognese follows the story of a drummer boy for the British World War One.The story talk about the start of World War One from a british soldier's perspective,this is a great children's book for elementary school teachers to read to their students while teaching them about how America became Independent it offers a lot of fact in a fun way because it uses George the drummer boy to appeal to young children.The Illustrati [...]

    9. A bit of history from the side of the British - something not seen very often in children's books. I like this book in that, while it's easy to read, it really gets into what happened and how the soldiers felt to be there. The author makes a note that this is a guess at how the British soldiers felt. I'd say it's probably pretty accurate. Very well done!

    10. This is perfect to read with Sam the Minuteman by the same author. It shares all the same great qualities as the story told from the American boy's perspective only this time from the British perspective: interesting story and illustrations, appeal to young boys, and a great way to get kids interested in history.

    11. This is an easy reader. It is from an interesting perspective that you don't read about very much. It is written from the perspective of the British Soldiers during the Battle of Lexington and Concord.

    12. this was a good book because it educates kids on some some American history. This story takes place in Boston and is about a drummer boy and his run in with the Minutemen while following orders. This book has some action and there are some deaths that take place during battle. Its a decent read

    13. A good companion to "Sam the Minuteman" by the same author. I especially liked the note at the end about every story having two sides. It is important for kids to learn that even though we fought to win our Independence from England, we are now friends, neighbors, and allies.

    14. Confusing at first because it's about the Revolutionary War with a boy named George, but it's NOT about George Washington. Pictures are messy and not interesting (it is from the 70s). An introduction to a couple of battles during the War.

    15. A really intersting take on the revolution from a lowly british soliders point of view. Great for my daughter who knew the story already.
