    "Great way of telling the history of Thanksgiving"

    Rush Revere and the Brave Pilgrims, is a wonderful way of sharing the history of the pilgrims and the struggle that they went through. Rush Revere show a group of student what hardships the Pilgrims had to deal with on their quest of religious freedom; ending with the story of the first Thanksgiving.
    This is a great way for children of all ages to learn just what the pilgrims had to live with. Rush Limbaugh does a great job in the narration of his book. This is a book that you will want to listen to over and over again.

    Story
    "Reviving history"
    Where does Rush Revere and the Brave Pilgrims rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    It's top notch. A kid's book that's like a good ride through unknown and intriguing territory. Really two stories: one the real-life history of the Pilgrims exodus to America and the school kids fantasy of a time traveling teacher and horse.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Rush Revere and the Brave Pilgrims?

    The contrast between the near starvation of the Pilgrims on arrival in America and the cornucopia of a 50s drive-in.


    What does Rush Limbaugh bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    His seriousness, respect and humor underscore the story at appropriate times.

    Mr. Limbaugh tells a good story in a fun way so that you don't even realize that you're learning history. I enjoyed it and so did my kids aged 6-16. I look forward to the next one.

    "Good Listen, Entertaining and Informative"

    The idea of this book was very creative. Rush is a decent narrator. You are entertained and informed all at the same time. Enjoyed listening with my 12 year old son. He was impressed. Recommend

    Story
    "Rectifying Revisionist History ...for Kids"

    The strong point of this book is that it is a lesson in American history that gives a viewpoint that is not taught to our children any more. The Plymouth Colony first tried a socialistic work arrangement but had to resort to a reward system to motivate the people to do the necessary work. In these dark times when we are witnessing the European Socialist states implode under the weight of their unsustainable welfare yet still see the progressive creep toward the same failed system here on our shores.

    As a work of fiction, this short book is clearly a piece is targeting young skulls full of mush. But as a history lesson it is very accessible for kids and it presents a message I want my kids to know.

    Rush Limbaugh, well-known for his flowing speech when speaking unscripted off the cuff, here gives a strangely stilted reading of his own words. But there is a certain appeal to having the text read by the author.

    Story
    "American Values in Story Form"
    Would you listen to Rush Revere and the Brave Pilgrims again? Why?

    No, but my 6 year old daughter will be.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Rush Revere and the Brave Pilgrims?

    I don't know if there was one memorable moment. The story is mostly about all the obstacles the Puritans and their companions had to overcome to establish their new colony.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    Rush's voice is his voice. He has a great expressive way of speaking, BUT this story would have benefited from a professional narrator. Every character sounds the same, and Rush reading the lines of the two teenage characters struck me as rather ridiculous, like an old guy trying to sound cool.


    Any additional comments?

    Rush is an unashamedly proud American. He is proud of our country's founding and sees the events of history as the building blocks for the greatest nation on earth. This book is propaganda to that effect. I wanted to listen to it first before giving it to my daughter to make sure it wasn't too over the top. I didn't find any of it offensive or deliberately falsified to make his point. The one place I rolled my eyes was at the building of the Plymouth Rock Colony, William Bradford want the colony to be a commune, and Rush Revere questions him about whether that would work. Repeatedly they talk about whether people will work if they all share the fruits. Although I agree with capitalism, I didn't really like putting such thoughts and words in the Puritan Bradford's mouth. They chose a commune for religious reasons, and after stressing his faith so much in the book, I found it odd to then have him doubt what his faith had led him to do. Overall, this is a fun little book which teaches the main events, ideas, and even dates of the first New England colony, which was vital for the foundation of our nation. I may update the review after my daughter listens.

    Story
    "Excellent Teaching Book"
    What made the experience of listening to Rush Revere and the Brave Pilgrims the most enjoyable?

    This is a great book for teaching American History and capitalism's principles. It is made even more enjoyable because it includes Rush, a man we know, and is read by him. Obviously, this would be the one man who would read it according to the way the author was thinking when he wrote it.


    What did you like best about this story?

    In a couple of sections, there were certain questions asked of one of the characters about what he had learned, and with each one, the answer was clear in my mind before the response.

    "Not just for kids!!"

    Even though this is a kids book, I found it funny and enlightening. I learned things that were never taught to me in school. We listened with our 9 year old granddaughter through about 5 chapters and then bought her the book.
    She loves it!
