Rush Revere and the Brave Pilgrims

Rush Revere and the Brave PilgrimsWritten by Rush Limbaugh

Rush Revere is a substitute history teacher. He has a horse named Liberty who can talk and together they can travel back through time. They, along with two students, Tommy and a girl named Freedom, spend some time on the Mayflower, the settling of Plymouth, and the first Thanksgiving. They meet several historical figures : William Bradford, Myles Standish, Squanto and others.

Yes, I was a little concerned about Rush Limbaugh inserting his politics into a novel for children, and he does. In my opinion it is done tastefully and actually is applicable in the story. This book was very well written. It had some tongue in cheek humor. The arrogant talking horse kept the story fun, and the Rush Revere character doesn’t take himself too seriously either. The illustrations are beautiful as well. This book is gorgeous with thick paper and sepia pages. I thought this was a great book.

Since I wrote this review I have read the rest of the books in the series, Rush Revere and the First Patriots, and Rush Revere and the American Revolution. They can be read and understood separately. I loved the entire series.
