My kids seem to really like these Rush Revere books. I think they must be tailored specifically to the 9-13 year old crowd. They don't really cross over into the grown-ups-enjoy-them-just-as-much area. I keep finding myself reading out-loud to them and zoning out. But they really like them and they never lose interest. They're not bad books and they do teach American history in a way that seems to interest this age group, so I do appreciate that. I'd just never pick them for myself. When we read ...more

It's hard to know how to start this review (aside from a note that I'm writing this after digging my housekeys out of a dumpster and am in exactly as good a mood as you'd expect based on that fact). The Rush Revere series is the sort that, even if you have never heard of them before, you have an opinion on before you even get to the end of the summary: Written by a well-known right-wing radio host and his wife, Rush Revere is the story of a history teacher who travels through time to facilitate ...more

Rush Revere and the American Revolution continues the youth series about American history written by Rush Limbaugh. This is the third book in the series and it focuses on pivotal events that took place during the American Revolution.
We got this book for our oldest daughter for Christmas and I have been waiting to read it – I had to wait until she read it first. I have read the first two books in the series and actually really enjoyed them. I usually read youth books so I know what my children ar

The author has a really cool way of telling the stories of American history. Not only that, but gives them a personality in the books that make you love your ancestors and founders even more than you did before. This series also teaches how to solve different problems in the character's lives, and teaches the readers good morals.

In book #3 of the series, teacher extraordinaire Rush Revere, his wisecracking horse Liberty, and their friends Cameron (Cam), Tommy, and Freedom are off on another time-traveling adventure off to meet some brave soldiers in the year 1775. They get to visit with such heroes as Dr. Joseph Warren, Paul Revere, John Hancock, Sam Adams, Thomas Jefferson, John Adams, and, of course, George Washington. With them, the reader will get to see the two lanterns hung in the Old North Church, ride with Paul ...more

{Rated G} Rush has done it again! How cool are these books that they allow our young one’s to really dive into our American history and be immersed in the reality of how our Nation was truly founded. I read this with my 10 year old and we loved it. To learn about how our freedom was won over the British soldiers and King George III is fascinating. As well as learning that America at the time was the true underdog, but with patience, a lot of strategy and smarts, and down right determination, Geo ...more

Rush Limbaugh has written a children’s literature trifecta: espousing a love of God, country, and service to others. In Rush Revere and the American Revolution readers accompany a middle school teacher and a hand full of students as they leap between modern day and the mid-1770’s. These historical journeys beginning with the placement of signal lights in the Old North Church for Paul Revere’s famous ride and draw to a close with the signing of the Declaration of Independence. During each visit i ...more

We have two copies of the book (one to read and one to loan) and children love reading the series. (Much like the Harry Potter series, there are young people in the books that relate to youthful readers.) As grandparents, we are fans of the Rush Revere series, and you will not be disappointed. Of course, my wife and I know a lot about American history, having gone through public school when they used to teach the amazing stories. Even so, we learn insights that are new to us. God Save America. R ...more

My grandson and I are enjoying reading about Liberty, the time traveling horse. This is the third book in the series we've read this month. He can't get enough. While having laughs over Liberty's antics, we are learning about American history and our Founding Fathers. We got snapshots of Lexington, Concord, Bunker and Breeds Hill, Henry Knox and Fort Ticonderoga, George Washington, Thomas Paine, and the signing of The Declaration of Independence. We are having fun and he is learning.

I really liked this book because I liked learning about the history and all of the historic events that happened. Also I like how there was some fantasy when they time travelled.

DNF because this book was downright boring. I thought, "OK, a book about American History written by a conservative radio guy. Let's see if he puts an incorrect slant on history." So I read and waited for the history and action to start. And waited. And finally 20% of the book had passed and still barely anything had happened except insults and corny jokes. The characters weren't very well developed, the talking horse wasn't very funny, the plot was continued from the earlier books without much ...more

Rush Revere and the American Revolution by Rush Limbaugh and his wife, Kathryn Adams Limbaugh. This is the third book in the series. The book opens in the 18th Century with the main characters, teacher Rush Revere and his horse Liberty, both who can time jump to and from the present day after getting struck by lightning. They met in secret with the patriot John Adams at the North Church in Boston and came up with a plan to disarm the British by sneaking aboard their ship to steal their weapons. ...more

After I moved past associating Rush Limbaugh's voice with "talk radio" I actually enjoyed his narration of the story. Rush Revere and his dependable time-traveling, wise-cracking horse, Liberty, bring history to life for students Cameron, Tommy, and Freedom, as well as, teach them to apply what they have learned to the challenges they face today. The story has serious and humorous moments and the pace is quick and does not bog down. The story is written in such a way to engage parents and their ...more

I really enjoyed Rush Limbaugh's American Revolution. He accurately tells the history of the American Revolution and how it happened but in a fun and creative way. He goes by the name Rush Revere and his horse Liberty, and his students, Cam, Tommy, and Freedom time travel back to witness what happened during the American Revolution. What I really liked about this book was the fact that Rush Limbaugh took the reader back to all of the important events that occurred such as the battles of Lexingto ...more

This is the third in the Rush Revere series that I highly recommend for middle school readers. It's a great, easily read story of the American Revolution that keeps young people involved. Most of the historical main characters are known to us, but Mr. Limbaugh introduces lesser known participants as well. I got this for my grandchildren to encourage them to learn more about the struggles are country endured to become the great nation it is. However, I am enjoying reading the series as well.

The book Rush Revere and the American Revolution by Rush Limbaugh tells the story of Paul Revere and the Declaration of Independence. In the book Rush Revere meets Paul Revere and helps him with the message:("The British are coming, the British are coming."). Overall, I thought that the book was awesome and interesting. The best part of the book was imagining Thomas Jefferson and all the others, sign the Declaration of Independence. The book talked about a couple other things about history. I wo ...more

I believe that the book was fairly good. It was a good story, but it didn’t really grab my attention. This book is about how Rush Revere and his crew travel back in time to the American Revolution. They wanted to see how it happened and help Cam beat his enemy, Billy. They were also trying to understand why Cam’s father had to go fight overseas. There is nothing inappropriate in this book for younger children, so I think it is good for ages nine and up.

My first read in the series, and my last.
It was difficult for me to follow the History with all the distractions the author added.
The writing style is not one I like to read.
