MEET RUSH LIMBAUGH’S REALLY GOOD PAL, RUSH REVERE!

Okay, okay, my name’s really Rusty—but my friends call me Rush. Rush Revere. Because I’ve always been the #1 fan of the coolest colonial dude ever, Paul Revere. Talk about a rock star—this guy wanted to protect young America so badly, he rode through those bumpy, cobblestone-y streets shouting “the British are coming!” On a horse. Top of his lungs. Wind blowing, rain streaming. . . .

Well, you get the picture. But what if you could get the real picture—by actually going back in time and seeing with your own eyes how our great country came to be? Meeting the people who made it all happen—people like you and me?

Hold on to your pointy triangle hats, because you can—with me, Rush Revere, seemingly ordinary substitute history teacher, as your tour guide across time! “How?” you ask? Well, there’s this portal. And a horse. My talking horse named Liberty. And—well, just trust me, I’ll get us there.

We’ll begin by joining a shipload of brave families journeying on the Mayflower in 1620. Yawn? I don’t think so. 1620 was a pretty awesome time, and you’ll experience exactly what they did on that rough, dangerous ocean crossing. Together, we’ll ask the pilgrims all our questions, find out how they live, join them at the first Thanksgiving, and much more.

So saddle up and let’s ride! Our exceptional nation is waiting to be discovered all over again by exceptional young patriots—like you!

Tell Rush Limbaugh, there are Canadian listeners that enjoy good literature, also people that live near the US border who actually listen to live broadcasts every day. The few copies I bought are going to be given away to interested people. Canada is the UNITED PROVINCES of AMERICA , that emulates the ways of the UNITED STATES of AMERICA Canada is also the new age freedom loving country.

5.0 out of 5 stars Not just for kids - fun for everyone who loves historical time-travel stories! Oct. 29 2013
By Chrissy the Stooges Woman - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Forget everything you think you know about Rush Limbaugh, read the book with an open mind, and you may be surprised at how quickly you get through this entertaining time-travel story!

It's primarily aimed at older kids, but can be enjoyed by anyone of any age. In fact, while reading it this morning I was reminded of the "Danny Dunn" books which I enjoyed back in the '60s and '70s, where Danny and his friends, helped by the Professor, traveled in time and/or space and learned a lot about science and history. I can easily see "Rush Revere" becoming a series that will evoke similar fond memories among today's kids.

The basic premise of the story is that "Rush Revere" (the character depicted on the side of Limbaugh's "Two if by Tea" bottles) is a substitute history teacher who has a talking horse "Liberty" (a very amusing character!). Rush and Liberty travel back into time and use a Smartphone to capture live videos of historical events as they happen, which they show their students as they happen. In this book, it's all about the Pilgrims and Puritans, and how/why they embarked on the Mayflower to the New World.

Please note that this is NOT a "polemic" book full of "conservative right-wing propaganda" (for those who think of Rush's show that way - I don't, but I know some do!). Any facts included which you may not have heard of can easily be verified as correct. So far I haven't found any "clunkers".

There are also lots of maps, photos and illustrations to help you figure out where the characters are and what they're up to.

Overall, as a former substitute teacher myself, I highly recommend this book for kids, teachers, parents - and anyone who loves a good historical time-travel story!

Started reading this morning before school with my 10 year old who struggles to love reading but in this case he was genuinely interested and didn't want to stop when it came time to leave! Can't wait until after school when we can continue the adventure together. THANK YOU!

5.0 out of 5 stars Exciting American History for all ages Oct. 29 2013
By Timothy A. Nelson - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Rush Revere is a great way for parents and children to learn history together, simply by reading it in novel format. This book is written so young children can understand and enjoy it it, yet I tremendously enjoyed reading it as a parent. It is so refreshing to read history that is actually historically true, not revisionist history.

5.0 out of 5 stars Leave political prejudices aside and enjoy the book... Oct. 29 2013
By Denis Vukosav - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
"Rush Revere and the Brave Pilgrims" by Rush Limbaugh is a book intended for kids and as such it should be seen without going into long political discussions.

The author who became widely known due to his radio talk-show career, said he wanted to make American history more accessible to children therefore he created fictional character Rush Revere who is able to travel through time.
Rush, who is history teacher will be going through the turbulent events of US history sharing adventures with famous Americans from the past.

Accompanied with his talking horse named liberty, it this story Rush Revere travels to the deck of the Mayflower learning children (his version) about the pilgrims and their role in establishing of United States.
Although author is saying that his book isn’t political agenda, and just the truth and history as said above it should be considered only as entertaining read what the author certainly succeeds with this book.

"Rush Revere and the Brave Pilgrims” is easy to read, it's funny, and if reader leave her/his political prejudices aside, she/he will be able to fully enjoy it.
Given that the population of children to whom the book is mainly intended, aren’t (yet) thinking about politics, I’m confident that they will like it a lot.

5.0 out of 5 stars Rush writes a winner Oct. 29 2013
By spirestar - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
I realize some people find Rush caustic, but in my opinion, he is the most articulate torch-bearer of conservative ideals -- namely, personal freedom and responsibility. This book is a much-needed addition to the conservative cause because it does three things exceptionally well: It entertains, it informs, and it manages to do so without grinding a political ax (honestly, I was surprised by this). This book is essentially a pop-history book aimed at 10-13 year-olds, but it will work well for younger kids and high-schoolers. And yes, adults will likely be tremendously entertained as well.

In some ways, the book feels sort of like the "Magic School Bus" series -- Rush Revere, a middle school teacher, travels back in time to witness the Pilgrims. The schtick works, however unappealing it originally sounded to me, and the book does one very important thing (I cannot make this point clearly enough): it teaches the values of the Pilgrims and draws the connecting line between those values and modern conservatism. It does not "preach" modern conservatism into the Pilgrim narrative. I was quite concerned that Rush (as much as I love him) would do more of the latter than the former, and found this a pleasant surprise.

I cannot recommend this book highly enough. Five stars and two thumbs up!

OTHER CONSERVATIVE READS FOR PARENTS AND THEIR KIDS:

2012 Election: The 106 BEST Reasons NOT to Vote for Obama -- This little book is probably my best Kindle buy ever (politics-wise). Tons of research, active internet links, and still-relevant info (despite having been written before the last election). I cracked it open yesterday just to take a look at the Obamacare section, and it reads like prophecy. Written for adults, but accessible to younger folks.

Four Centuries of American Education -- David Barton (a historian made `famous' by Glenn Beck) does an excellent job of outlining the progressive decline into progressivism in our school system. Honestly, virtually any Barton book would be a great read for adults and any high schooler interested in learning "real" history not taught in public institutions.

48 Liberal Lies About American History: (That You Probably Learned in School) -- Schweikart, a history professor, lays bare many of the lies you (and almost certainly your kids) learned in school. More aimed at adults, but I'd suggest parents arm themselves and impart the wisdom contained in the book to their kids.
