Adventures of Rush Revere

Adventures of Rush Revere

About the Book: As part of the Homeschool Review Crew, I received a complimentary set of the Adventures of Rush Revere #1 New York Times Bestselling Book Series by Rush and Kathryn Adams Limbaugh. Wow, that's quite a mouthful. LOL It is Rush Limbaugh we're talking about though. ;) 

Some people might be surprised to find out that Rush Limbaugh has written a book series for kids, but that's exactly what this is. The Adventures of Rush Revere series is about a substitute middle-school history teacher that travels back in time. His name is Rush Revere (yep!) and he and his horse Liberty, along with two of his students travel back to this country's founding to find out how things really went down. 

The five books in the series are as follows:

Rush Revere and the Brave Pilgrims - As you might have guessed, the first book follows the story of the Pilgrims and their trip to the new world aboard the Mayflower. It also includes the story of their first winter and the very first Thanksgiving.

Rush Revere and the First Patriots - This book follows the event leading up to the American Revolution. Rush and the students get to meet people like Sam Adams, Patrick Henry, and even King George III! 

Rush Revere and the American Revolution - I think this one is obvious. LOL In this adventure the kids get to meet some of America's most famous founders, like George Washington and John Handcock. 

Rush Revere and the Star-Spangled Banner - This one sounds the most interesting to me. Rush Revere takes the kids on a trip to Washington D.C., but then they travel back in time to meet Betsy Ross and see the Star-Spangles Banner written! 

Rush Revere and the Presidency - This one also sounds really cool. It's a bit more unique than other books I've seen as the kids actually get to see the first three presidents, Washington, Adams, and Jefferson, in action. Our first three presidents are some of the most interesting figures in our history and this book lets kids meet them in a fun and interesting way.

What are the pros of this book? These books look at the founding of America in a fun and entertaining way. They also include colorful illustrations and copies of original documents. They are written about middle-schoolers, but older kids, and even adults can easily enjoy them and even learn something!

What's not to like? Well, if you don't like Rush, you probably won't like it. Why? I don't know. That's just how people are. Haha. But, seriously, though, this is a book series from a conservative, so it has a conservative bent. I happen to think that is the probably pretty close to the right way to look at our history, to be honest. (And, yeah, you see what I did there.) 

The Crazy Mom take:

I have said it before, but these types of book are my favorite way to learn history. I absolutely despised history as a child. Despised it. It was all about dead people and events long ago. What did I care about all that? Really, there were "Brady Bunch" and "Happy Days" reruns to watch after all. Honestly, that's what really mattered to me as a kid. When I got older, I started reading biographies about actual human beings with dreams, feelings, and passions. What? These people could be interesting? Yes! They could be interesting, indeed. So, as a homeschool mom, I have tried to find books like this that are either biographies or historical fiction. Lo and behold, most of my kids actually enjoy them! 

Full disclosure: At first the Rush Revere character seemed a little silly to me. Rush's face imposed on a revolutionary figure. Really? I remember when these first came out. I actually thought they were more of a joke than anything. You know, just something to irritate liberals. LOL I often wondered what they were really like, but never got around to getting any. Then we got them to review and my daughter really liked them! Once I checked them out, I realized they are really pretty cool. Apparently, they are a great resource after all! (Who knew? I mean, I'm a pretty conservative gal, but I honestly didn't think Rush Limbaugh was the kinda guy I'd want to teach my kids. LOL)

Anyway, my daughter has only gotten through the first two books but plans to finish the series. She says "they are great books" and she thinks it is a "great history series and is a good way to introduce history to a kid who might not otherwise enjoy history." As a history lover herself, she says she couldn't put the book down and looks forward to finishing the rest.

I think I might just add these books to my summer reading list!

What's the bottom line? 
The book itself says $20 for the hardcover, but I found that the different retailers have it for varying prices. The book can also be purchased in audio and e-book formats for varying costs. Links to the book from several sellers are found on this page on the Rush Revere website.

I am going to give The Adventures of Rush Revere book series 5 out of 5 hearts!!! <3 b="" nbsp="">💗💗💗💗💗
