Paul Revere's Ride and The Pied Piper of Hamlin | [Henry Wadsworth Longfellow]

Paul Revere's Ride and The Pied Piper of Hamlin

Two old poems of exciting events for the children in all of us.... Paul Revere's exciting midnight ride to warn all the neighbors in the countryside that the British were coming - one light if by land and two if by sea. And The Pied Piper of Hamelin.... He got rid of the pesky, hated rats, but when the villagers refused to pay for his services, the Pied Piper took matters into his own hands...and the villagers paid a very dear price, indeed, in the end.

    Story
    "Good story, but in poem format"
    Would you listen to Paul Revere's Ride and The Pied Piper of Hamlin again? Why?

    I liked it, but my daughters enjoy stories and dramatic readings more. She didn't feel that the narrator read poetry in an interesting manner.


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    My daughter did like the story of Paul Revere's ride.
