Rush Revere and the Brave Pilgrims: Time-Travel Adventures with Exceptional Americans is the first book in a running series by #1 radio talk show host and #1 New York Times bestselling author Rush Limbaugh, who has an entire virtual museum devoted to him. Literally. He also has a webpage at www.rushlimbaugh.com.
The book series stars a man named Rush Revere and his time-traveling talking magical horse, Liberty, as they go back in time to various events in American history. In this installment, we get to learn firsthand what life on the Mayflower was like and what happened once the Pilgrims settled at Plymouth, the first colony in the “New World,” with a few illustrations, nice, sophisticated wording, and aged, yellow pages to match. History has never been so fun!
(That’s what the book says in itself, anyway.)
I think the book really accomplishes its design goal to entice kids who fall asleep in their elementary schools’ history classes and entertain them… with history itself! (Somehow that works. Don’t ask me why.) The book was intentionally designed that way to help children discover that history certainly isn’t boring. The book is just the opposite of boring, in fact. However, there is just one drawback: the price tag, a hefty $20. But you won’t have to worry about that if you use the provided Amazon.com link above, anyway, since it cuts off about $9 from the retail price. So, parents, I heavily recommend this book for children who struggle to stay awake in history class as well as struggle to stay away from those pesky Cs and Ds.
In short: Pick this book up if your elementary child is having a hard time in history class!
Thanks for reading!
