Format: Hardcover
‘Rush Revere and the First Patriots’ by Rush Limbaugh is another installment in author series of history books which present somewhat controversial version of historical events, though intended for kids and as such should be judged without getting into unnecessary political debates.

Rush Limbaugh, middle-school history teacher creates his books with the goal to present major events of American history speaking about them in a way understandable and interesting to young readers. Limbaugh became widely known because of his radio talk-shows and his repeated claims that history is not known for kids. Therefore he decided to create fictional character Rush Revere who is able to travel through time, in order to make boring history as children often see it, more funny and interesting to explore.

In this sequel Rush is still in the company of his faithful companion talking horse named Liberty, while travelling back in time to Boston of 18th century. There he will lead reader through the turbulent events which set fire for the American Revolution…

Limbaugh once again distances himself arguing that his work is not about the politics, but his view of history that no matter how controversial might seem to some people, it provides a lot of fun to read, and as such easy reading should be considered.

With ‘Rush Revere and the First Patriots’ Rush Limbaugh created another book that will be subject of major discussions, with ardent supporters and big critics, but if all political prejudices are discarded, it’s work that is easy and fun to read, whose 250 pages goes really quickly. So if you liked Limbaugh earlier works, certainly you will also fully enjoy this sequel and if you didn’t, all positive things what could be written in this review will probably make you more determined in your rejection.

But in the end, it's just a book…

My kids love learning history with Rush Revere! 12 Mar. 2014
By BookDad - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
We loved the book (with historical photographs) but we also loved the audio. Rush's story is both educational and entertaining! Laugh-out-loud funny at times! Liberty (the talking time-traveling horse) is our favorite character. In book 2, Rush Revere, Liberty, and a couple of the kids travel to events like the Boston Massacre, the Boston Tea Party, and even to Windsor Castle to meet with King George III. And we loved meeting historical Americans like Benjamin Franklin, Samuel Adams, Paul Revere, and our favorite, Patrick Henry. We learned about the taxes imposed upon the colonists by Parliament. What a great teaching moment for my kids! And we loved Liberty's Stomp Act song about the Stamp Act!!! The kids were completely engaged! Was that Rush Limbaugh singing on the audio!? My kids have the song memorized now! They keep singing it over and over! Most importantly, this book teaches the value and importance of fighting for freedom! Favorite line: "Only when we are free can we be all that God wants us to be. Only when we are free can we do all that God wants us to do. Freedom is from God. And when we fight for freedom we always fight on the side of God."

interesting insights into personalities of important figures in American history 29 May 2014
By Wayne S. Walker - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
In this sequel to Rush Revere and the Brave Pilgrims (2013), colonial-dressing history teacher Rush Revere and his special horse Liberty time travel with students Tommy, Freedom, Cameron (Cam), and even snooty Elizabeth back to pre-American Revolution days. They talk to Benjamin Franklin in 1765 when he tried to convince the English Parliament to remove the Stamp Act. They meet Patrick Henry that same year in Virginia prior to his famous 1775 speech to the House of Burgesses. They have an audience in Windsor Palace with King George III in 1766. They visit with Samuel Adams and Paul Revere in Boston, MA, following the “Boston Massacre” in 1770 and participate in the famous Boston Tea Party. And they get to speak with John Adams and even George Washington at the First Continental Congress in 1774 at Philadelphia, PA. There is a lot of interesting insight into the personalities of these important figures of American history.

Yes, the idea of a time-travelling horse may seem silly to some, but remember, this book is designed to appeal to 21st-century kids and get them interested in learning more about the exceptional history of this nation, so it’s not going to be written in a dry, dusty text-book style of simply reciting names, places, and dates that has turned so many students off in studying history. As with the first volume, the left absolutely hates this book, but looking over other reviews, I found that most of the vile epithets hurled were actually against the author and not against the book itself. Some people kept talking about all the errors, but none were really specified. One person did complain that the work of Thomas Jefferson wasn’t included, but Rush Revere and the First Patriots basically covers the time from 1765 to 1774, and Jefferson’s role in American independence really didn’t become prominent until the writing of the Declaration of Independence in 1776. So there’s plenty of room for him in a subsequent volume.

My daughter has never liked history and has had a hard time with grades in school. She loves this book more than I could have imagined! A great way for her to learn history that seemed boring to her before.

Review for Rush Revere and the First Patriots. 30 Jun. 2014
By Ann Costello - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
As a history enthusiast, I was so impressed with the interesting details of these amazing American First Patriots. I read this to my 2nd and 3rd grade grandchildren this summer, and I know they will have so much important background for next year's history class and projects. They enjoyed hearing about these heroes and wanted me to keep reading.
I have recommended this to parents home schooling their children and will bring these series to their school. I think these books should be in all schools and libraries. I feel Rush Limbaugh brought these American heroes to life again and children reading his story will have a personal connection to them. He has made history fun to learn.

Terrific 12 Mar. 2014
By Amy Cawvey - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
My daughter, who is age 8, was so excited when the latest book arrived. She is thrilled and we are already finished with the first two chapters and it just arrived late today. I highly recommend both books. She already linked "taxation without representation" with a lesson they are discussing in school. Looking forward to more books!
