Read with Liberty

American history, Rush Revere, Liberty, American patriots

Do your children enjoy learning about history? Have you read any of the Rush Revere books? Right now is a great time to get your children interested in history if they are not already, because the Rush Revere series of books offers the chance to learn about early American history, with the fun of a few special characters, especially Liberty, the talking horse.

If you are not familiar with the Rush Revere books, take a look at our review of the series from back in June. Arlene has read all of them over the years, but the review was her first chance to own a complete set of her own.

I have known for quite a while that Rush and Kathryn Adams Limbaugh were generous people, and the opportunity we had to review the book set earlier this year confirmed that. Right now they are hosting a Read with Liberty campaign that ends on January 31, 2018. There are two separate categories, one for individuals, one for groups. So whether you read the books at home, in your classroom, or at a homeschool co-op, there is a fun way for you to enter. Read from your favorite book, with your plush Liberty by your side, or on your lap, and then write a letter to Liberty telling about your adventures. You could win treasures from Liberty's treasure chest, cool gadgets (from Apple - thanks Rush!) or a pizza party for your group.

If you don't already have a plush Liberty of your own, you can pick one up at the All American store for $25.99 plus shipping. Arlene has a Liberty, and they frequently read books together. No, it's not just for little kids, at 17, Arlene and Liberty still read together...and most afternoons they listen to Rush's show as well. :)

So, if you're thinking about gifts for the holidays, or if someone special has an upcoming birthday, why not bless them with a stuffed Liberty, and a few good history books to read as well? Liberty has frequently kept me company when I'm writing, but I'm pretty sure Liberty prefers spending time with Arlene, because she shares her licorice! ;)
