Adventures of Rush Revere #1 New York Times Bestselling Book Series by Rush and Kathryn Adams Limbaugh is a 5 book series that features this cool substitute history teacher that has a crazy talking horse. The horse named Liberty is able to take the Teacher Rush Revere back in time with a few magic words. In this series your child will get a first hand look at American history. This series is so crazy fun, they couldn't wait to see where Liberty would take them next.
The first book is called Rush Revere and the Brave Pilgrims. In this book the kids were introduced to Rush and his trusty steed Liberty. My girls couldn't quit giggling when they found that Liberty was a talking horse that could travel back through time with just a few magic words. We loved that he could hold his breath and become invisible to others around him. The first place we traveled back to was the Mayflower to experience what it was like to leave everything and start over in a strange place. My oldest agreed that she would get sea sick and has no desire to sail across the sea and throw up. The girls both agreed that the food served aboard the Mayflower was not something they would enjoy. They were also surprised at the living conditions aboard the ship. They had envisioned big rooms and nice fluffy beds. We were introduced to people like Myles Standish and Squanto. My girls were especially fond of the Squanto adventure.
Book 2 is called Rush Revere and the First Patriots. Once again they Rush and Liberty will take your kids back in time a point in history just before the American Revolution begins. In this book kids get to learn why Americans were so willing to stand up to King George III and fight for the freedom we have today. This was a fun book for us as we studied the American Revolution this last school year.
Book 3 is Rush Revere and the American Revolution. In this book you will Rush Rush Rush into adventures that occurs during the American revolution. Your child will meet George Washington, John Hancock and Paul Revere and many others. It brings to life Paul Reveres ride and the two historic lanterns that were hung in the Old North Church. We helped Paul Revere avoid capture and witnessed some of the greatest battles of the time. The girls said the most exciting part was Paul Revers ride they were worried he wouldn't make it and cheered when he avoided being captured.
Book 4 is Rush Revere and the Star-Spangled Banner. In this gook students travel back to Washington, D.C. where they learn about Americas government and how it works. The girls wanted me to mention that in this book they got to witness the writing of the our national anthem the Star-Spangled Banner. After this section of the book the girls ran around singing the national anthem for days. The yelled with triumph when Dolly Madison saved an important portrait when the British invaded D.C and set it ablaze. We learned about Betsy Ross sewing the American flag and so much more. But you are going to have to read the book to find out.
The 5th and final book is Rush Revere and the Presidency. This book covers things like how elections work and our early presidents. My oldest has been fascinated with George Washington ever since we went to see the George Washington exhibit at the history museum. So it was a thrilling moment when Rush and Liberty rode through the portal to find George Washington. The girls also enjoyed meeting John Adams and Thomas Jefferson. The book also touches on the Louisiana Purchase which is something we studied this year in history. Having done a short study on the Louisiana Purchase I have to say this book did a much better job of bringing it to life than our previous study did.
This has been one of the best history book sets that we have ever read. I can't say enough good things about this set. Each book brought history alive. These books drew both of my girls into the lesson. I would find them talking about each trip back to the past. They were always excited to Rush Rush Rush into the next book.
