Nationally syndicated radio talk-show host Rush Limbaugh has long wanted to make American history come to life for the children of his listeners. In Rush Revere and the Brave Pilgrims, he created the character of a fearless middle-school history teacher named Rush Revere, who travels back in time and experiences American history as it happens, in adventures with exceptional Americans. In this second book in the series, Rush Revere is transported back to the people and events leading up to the American Revolution.

I would recommend this for an adult or child. It would be fun to do as a family read, using a chapter at a time and leaving them wanting more. If you match it with the paperback, they can read along. Even better!
It is a positive look at the First Patriots with a little technology mixed in to make it seem more relevant to kids and even some adults, that live and die by the cell phone and internet.
I enjoyed the "Pilgrims" book and await a new book in the time travel series.
I chuckled several times. I love the horse and the kids.
Forget any prejudice or preconceived feelings concerning Limbaugh and just enjoy. History come to life is always more engaging for young people, and this does the trick.
The fact that my son so enjoyed listening and was able to retain the information.
It had to be Liberty. My son and I laughed often.
What a great series. It is a true service Mr. Limbaugh has done for our young people. My son can't wait for the next book, and he has started to take a real interest in our history and current events.
Without a doubt written for a young audience...but this book is a fun romp through history that will have your kids learning more than you did in school. It appears someone did some extensive research for this book (maybe Limbaugh himself or maybe one of his staff). Anyway, I enjoyed the book, but had more fun watching my kids get into it. Funny thing is my 11 year old thought she was too grown up for it. I started it for my 8 year old and before long, my daughter was reading along with the hardback version as well. On her own, she has already gone back and listened to the first one as well. I recommend this one for a great family listen.
Liberty is awesome.
I cannot think of one. History books are not exciting. This is.
His voice is easy to listen to. Intriguing. Keeps me waiting for more.
Please, keep this series going.
I will gladly listen to both his books in this series again and again. Not only is Rush's reading engaging, but the story line AND the historical facts describing America's fight for FREEDOM has inspired me.
I liked best his engaging story line, sprinkled with plenty of humor and seasoned with historical fact.
His ability to communicate through the spoken word is most helpful to me.
I laughed out loud several times.
I heartily recommend this book to all adults who love America -- oh, and by the way, to their children as well.
I love this series so far. My 9 year old daughter and I started reading these together. These may be written for children but I am hooked. I have read the next two books without my daughter, shh don't tell but I can't wait to know what happens next and 30minutes a night makes it too long of a wait to find out what's about to transpire. This is the first audible for this series however and as much as I like Rush, his narration is a little dry. But I do enjoy hearing him the author read his creative works, dry and all.
