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!

Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
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 October 29, 2013
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... October 29, 2013
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 October 29, 2013
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!

Far more education wrapped up in a story than most kids will ever learn in school. And it's fun to read so they'll actually absorb it.

Brave pilgrims. Rush
Troy,
Are you saying that our government is so fragile that one man can cause it to stop functioning? Actually, I agree with you, but that man's name is Harry Reid. Take your own advise and do your own thinking.
