- Christian Shelf-Esteem's review of Rush Revere and the American Revolution by Amanda on 6/19/2015
Rush Limbaugh has written a children's literature trifecta: espousing a love of God, country, and service to others. In Rush Revere and the American Revolution readers accompany a middle school teacher and a hand full of students as they leap between modern day and the mid-1770's. These historical journeys beginning with the placement of signal lights in the Old North Church for Paul Revere's famous ride and draw to a close with the signing of the Declaration of Independence. During each visit into the past the children encounter courageous patriots, men of character, who selflessly risk their lives for the cause of freedom. Upon their return to modern day, Rush Limbaugh illustrates through his characters the wisdom that can be gained by investigating the past.
Historically accurate and hilariously funny Rush Revere has ignited an excitement for Revolutionary History in my children. Now when they learn new facts about this time period they equate it to a portion of this book. While they know horses cannot talk or travel through time, Limbaugh's fictional tale was the perfect mode of delivery for the historical truths contained within these pages. He has made learning fun! What more can a parent ask for?
He also adds a touching nod to our military service members! In the story, Rush Revere answers a mother's plea for help with her son Cameron. Cam's father, a U.S. Marine, has been deployed to Afghanistan and his absence has taken a toll on Cameron. Withdrawn, angry, and bitter, her son has been lashing out. By way of a mentoring relationship with Rush and their encounters with extraordinary American patriots, Cam's defenses fall as he gains understanding about why his father serves.
Well-composed, entertaining, and inspiring Rush Revere and the American Revolution earns 5/5 stars.
