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.

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.

Entertaining, Engaging, and Educational

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.

Toilet humor?

So, I listen to Rush and hear all these people call in and gush about how great these books are, so I decided to pick up the first in the series from Audible because it is read by Rush himself. I figured it would be the optimal experience since the author (who speaks for a living) narrated his own book.
I didn't get past this first few minutes. I love the idea of making history more accessible for my children, but toilet humor? come on, no thanks.

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.

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

Little historical content- annoying narrator

As a homeschooling mom I love when history comes alive for my kids but this book missed the mark. There was a lot of “meaningless fluff” and the narrator (author) was awful. He used the same ”voice” for all characters with no voice inflection so it was hard to know who was talking and what they were feeling. It just felt like he was near-yelling through the whole thing. We got halfway and gave up.

Hamilton Fans will Love

In this introductory book by Rush Limbaugh, you learn about the Pilgrimage of the future Amaricans.
This book connects well with both children and adults alike, using relatable subjects from the twentieth century to relate to significant moments in American history, even in 2021.
Fans of the American Musical: Hamilton will not only enjoy this book, but all of the books in the 'Rush Revere' series. People can connect moments in their favorite musical to a (about) 13-year-old book.
To be fair, the last time I listened to this audiobook was in 2013, but as I browsed my library here on Audible and found this book, I was honestly very excited.
Trust me, this book is great.
Recommend for all ages, especially Middle School students!
