It's February 1778, and the war is going badly for the Americans. John Adams, with his 10-year-old son, John Quincy, boards the Boston for a transatlantic voyage to enlist French support for the war. This short, exciting story introduces young readers to two important characters from our early history. Tom Stechschulte's reading is riveting and concise, relating the dangers of wartime travel across a vast ocean filled with hostile warships and winter storms. An author's note places the story in context and relates John Quincy's future as an important statesman. Side Two repeats the story with page-turn cues, allowing young readers to read along while following an excellent model of pacing and expression.
