Adventures of Rush Revere Book Series Review

Do your children love reading? Do they love reading books that come to life? I highly suggest checking out Adventures of Rush Revere #1 New York Times Bestselling Book Series By Rush and Kathryn Adams Limbaugh. Rush Limbaugh was a political commentary of a talk-radio program of The Rush Limbaugh Show. Rush and his wife Kathryn have written 5 books in the Adventures of Rush Revere Book Series. I received all 5 Books for this review: Rush Revere and the Brave Pilgrims, Rush Revere and the First Patriots, Rush Revere and the American Revolution, Rush Revere and the Star Spangled Banner, and Rush Revere and the Presidency. 

Adventures of Rush Revere
In the series, which are chapter books, you will be time traveling to different periods of time through American History. You time travel with a time traveling horse name Liberty and his rider Rush Revere.

Rush Revere and the Brave Pilgrims – In this first book you meet characters who will follow in the series of books. Rush Revere is a middle school substitute teacher. Liberty is a talking, time traveling horse. Liberty is a free spirited girl, who was born on the Fourth of July. Tommy is a quarter back to the foot ball team. He comes across as the class clown and one who doesn’t care about learning. What his friends don’t know is that is his a science geek. In this book the kids get to start out their journey of learning and boarding the Mayflower , they have the same experience the Pilgrims did as they journey to the New World. The kids found out how how they lived, and had the experience of joining the Pilgrims for the First Thanksgiving. They also got to me Squanto and William Bradford as well. They learned why the Pilgrims moved to the New World and their way of life.

Rush Revere and the First Patriot – In the second book, this takes us to the time right before the American Revolution. They meet Americans like Samuel Adams, Paul Revere, and Patrick Henry who are willing to fight for their freedom from the British King George III. Some interesting topics are the start of the Thirteen colonies, Boston Tea Party, Taxes, and Freedom.

Rush Revere and the American Revolution – the focus in this book is the American Revolution, but with a student named Cam. His father is deployed over seas and his mother is seeing a negative demeanor. Cam and the crew meet exceptional Americans like Dr. Joseph Warren, John Hancock, and George Washington. Cam then starts to understand the true meaning of Freedom.

Rush Revere and the Star-Spangled Banner – In this book Tommy’s grandfather is ill, and Rush Revere was hoping that his history field trip to Washington DC would keep his mind busy. While visiting Washington DC they visit the national landmarks of the Washington Monument, and the White House to learn about the American Government. Back in time they get to see the history of the writing of the national anthem and witness Dolley  Madison save a patriotic symbol, and more.

Rush Revere and the Presidency – In this fifth book in the series, it focuses on the American Elections, leadership, and the early Presidents. Cam wants to run for student president, in this book he gets to learn the skills needed to be successful. Cam learns a big thing here and learns that it is not all about fame and glory, but to serve others. The question is does he win?

My  Thoughts: 

My daughter and I have read the first book in the series Rush Revere and the Brave Pilgrims. We read two chapters a day. I would read one and she would read one. I was blown away as we were reading this book. It was really nice view into to history and meeting some of the people more up close.  Seriously, History brought to life! The time travels back into the days of history was so fascinating. It was really hard to want to put the book down and wait to read it until the next day. You want to know what happens next.

My daughters favorite character was Liberty because she could go through time and could talk. The horse was spunky and in all honesty always hungry like my daughter. She loved that if needed Liberty could hide so he wouldn’t be seen.

One thing that I thought complimented the book was the pictures that you saw. There were some that were cartoonish to the story (Rush Revere and Liberty), historical art, historical images of people and places, and artifacts. I felt that this gave a nice visual to the story.

I really think this is a good way to spark an interest in American History for those who struggle, or for those that absolutely love American  History. It sparked conversation with my daughter and also some discussions. We did take some time to look up William Bradford and Squanto. It not only was entertaining but it sparked more learning. Those are the types of books I absolutely love.
