Young Patriots Series

The life of John Hancock, contemporary of Samuel Adams and Paul Revere and first person to sign the Declaration of Independence, is featured in this volume of the Young Patriots series. Detailing Hancock's early years, this work focuses on his relationship with boyhood friend, John Adams, and his academic struggles with what he would later become most famous for: his writings.

The everyday details of family life, the time period in which they lived, what they wore, and the challenges they faced in school create a window through which children can access history. The early evidence of character, responsibility, ability, and courage showcase situations to which every child can relate.

  • “When learning about American heroes, young readers are often more eager to know about the famous people’s childhoods, rather than their adult accomplishments. These easy-to-read fictional biographies satisfy that curiosity.”

    " I have really enjoyed reading this series with Christian. It is interesting to see the lives of many of the patriots cross when they were young. Like John Hancock and John Adams were great friends when young and it also tells about when he first met Paul Revere. Cool. "
