Rush Revere and the Presidency Reviews
I have gotten all the Rush Revere books for my grandchildren and then I read them first. They love them and, as a former American History teacher, I appreciate the reading of "real" American History rather than the revisionist history the kids get today. I'm assuming that Rush and his wife will be doing a book on the Supreme Court and also on Alexander Hamilton as the first Secretary of the Treasury and the establishment of the capitalist system for the U.S. I have also recommended the books to other grandparents and parents for their kids as well.
As a 68 year old veteran, I've read every Rush Revere book. Although I learned much of the book's contents as a boy, I thoroughly enjoyed going back in time to learn first hand the early history of our country! Right from the horse's mouth, you might say (thank you Liberty)!
Rush writes the most amazing books. I have the complete series, both hard back and audio books for all of them. When they come out in a group of 5 I will have them for my soon to be 7 year old Granddaughter....
After lights-out and electronics-off at night, we allow our 13 yr old to listen to CDs as she's falling asleep and she loves this one! She's listened to the whole series as an 11-12 yr old and when this came out, we thought she might be too old now, but she wanted it and listens to it over and over.
Excellent book, well written and engaging for the kids (and the adults). These books provide an easy, engaging way to learn history (our true history), and to want to read and learn more. For most kids, history is boring, memorizing dates and places. These books take you to the events and immerse you in them, so you understand what really happened, and the meaning and importance. If we taught history this way (our true history, in an engaging way) America would be a much better place today.
Thank you for providing Rush's books at a reasonable price. I now have all five and they are really well written with beautiful illustrations. The stories are told in a manner appealing to children which is excellent in prompting them to read but so many details are either forgotten or have never been taught to adults! Thus these books are enjoyable to all and I'd highly recommend them to families particularly when so many public schools have ceased United States history and civics classes.
These books are fabulous! I was, at first, surprised at how well received they were by kids even in 6th and 7th grade. The books are beautifully produced with nice paper, great illustrations/pictures and the characters are durable! Both boys and girls like them and don't seem to tire of them. We have the entire series, plus the audiobook versions. They are listened to repeatedly in the car or at night.
You will enjoy this series of books as much as I have, and I am a middle aged man. The history inside is fun to read, and I have forgotten some of it over the years. But for children and young adults, this is for you. I will not give away any spoilers.
