American history is being rewritten by the authors of Common Core and books written for children. George Washington, Patrick Henry, John Adams, Paul Revere, and others of our nation’s Founding Fathers are hardly known by children today, and they are not painted as heroes of freedom anymore. The story about why the Pilgrims first came to America is completely unknown to children growing up today. In fact, the concepts of Religious Freedom and Liberty are not explained as high ideals that were the foundation of our nation’s beginnings.
So one of this generation’s mouthpieces for Liberty – Rush Limbaugh – began writing a series of books aimed at children that retells these important stories. He is honest about the facts, true to the motives of the heroes, and captivating for children and young teens. The setting for each book is that Rush Revere, a substitute history teacher, and his side-kick horse, Liberty, are able to time-travel and take students back to relive important events in American history. They meet and talk with the heroes and ask them questions.
I have read them and am impressed with the quality of the writing, the artwork, and even the paper on which they are printed! Our students have enjoyed reading each book in this unfolding American history series. I recommend that you have a copy of each in your library for your children to read.
I’ve written another post about my efforts to get teen boys to read books and I am happy to suggest reading material when I can for your Christian school or home.
