Rush and Kathryn Adams Limbaugh and all of us at the Adventures of Rush Revere Series are proud to support the homeschool mission nationwide. We absolutely love hearing from you and sharing your great stories with other homeschool families! Below are some of our favorites along with homeschool event dates featuring the Revere Series!

Homeschool FOM – December 2017

“Worldschooled” with Rush Revere

Homeschool Family of the Month – December 2017

Liam and Jackson from New Mexico recently travelled to Boston and visited all sorts of historical landmarks. They let us know about their week on the Freedom Trail, where the boys remembered all their adventures with Liberty! Liam and Jackson are “worldschooled”. This means, just like Liberty and the time-travelling Crew, they travel all over to learn in different locations. Worldschooling has allowed them to do cool things like visit museums and even take a hand at flying a plane! Their favorite museum to visit is the Marine Corps Museum. When they travel, Liam and Jackson listen to the Adventures of Rush Revere series audiobooks.

Check out this photo of the boys in front of Samuel Adams’s tombstone. We think these costumes are perfect for time-travelling. It feels like we’re back in 1776!

Homeschool FOM – November 2017

Rushing to Fort McHenry with Liberty!

Homeschool Family of the Month – November 2017

Our homeschool friends Sawyer, Miles, and Eliot went on a trip to Fort McHenry and all over Baltimore with their family. These history lovers checked out the canons and learned all about the Battle of Fort McHenry! Eliot even drew us a special picture of the scene. He is an artist just like Maddie and Freedom! The best part is the boys had their aunt read Rush Revere and the American Revolution in order to go on the trip. They didn’t want her to feel left out when they already knew all of the cool facts. Liberty thinks that is AMAZING!

We are so happy to hear that the boys brought their Liberty plush with them. Liberty thinks he may want to go along next time. He is a little worried about fitting on a plane, but he thinks it would be worth it to experience such a cool trip!

Homeschool FOM – October 2017

Strong as Steele in Washington!

Homeschool Family of the Month – October 2017

Mary Boyde, Samuel, Steele and Haley are homeschoolers who love history. Haley and Steele were so inspired by the Rush Revere and the Brave Pilgrims book that they acted out the Pilgrims’ adventures at Plymouth Rock with their neighbors. What a great way to make history come alive!

Steele receives treatments for Crouzon Syndrome, and when he is in the hospital he listens to the Rush Revere audiobooks.  He has listened to them all multiple times and has even shared them with his friends. The Crew sent the hospital a set of books so all the kids could enjoy Liberty’s antics. We hope they love them as much as Steele does! His favorite character is Cam because they both have SUPER dads who are serving in the military. Their mother, Lindsay, says, “I am so incredibly thankful for the books, especially the audiobooks because they are engaging, accurate and capture the imagination.” Rush Revere would be proud to see how much these kids have learned!

Homeschool FOM – September 2017

Ready to Time-Travel With Liberty!

Homeschooler of the Month – September 2017

David of Maryland is an exceptional homeschooler who someday dreams of becoming an inventor. Some of his hobbies include piano, baseball, ice hockey, and Legos. But more than anything, David is a book lover and history fanatic… definitely the perfect match for the Rush Revere series! David’s mom told us that he loves to learn about America, and enjoys drawing historical figures as well. She told us about an awesome Revolutionary War History camp he attended this summer and how he got to recreate battle scenes. So cool!

Check out David dressed up in colonial clothing. Do you think he is about to go back in time with Liberty and needs to dress up to fit in? Hey, wait is he a red coat and working with Elizabeth? “Oh, boy,” says Liberty, this one is tricky! Just kidding David, you look awesome! Freedom is particularly impressed.

TENNESSEE

A group of middle school educators meet at the Fort Bluff Camp in Tennessee each May to discuss events for the upcoming year. When we heard about the camp, especially their fun sports program, we knew we wanted to send them a little something from Rush Revere and Liberty. When they arrived at the closing ceremony, everyone received special gift bags for their homeschool students including the Adventures of Rush Revere books! Our friend Dave from the camp let us know the children were “excited and thankful” for the books and thought it was a great encouragement.

Homeschool FOM – August 2017

Flying Through History with Rush Revere

Homeschool Family of the Month – August 2017

Our Homeschool Family of the Month this month is Crystal and family from Cedar Grove, North Carolina. She and her husband have homeschooled for 7 years, working opposite shifts for 16 years so that there was always a parent at home. Their boys are currently 16, 14 and 7 years old. The older boys are active members of the civil air patrol program, and her oldest dreams of attending the Air Force Academy and someday NASA. Her 14-year-old is a wildlife fanatic and wants to become a wildlife officer or park ranger.

Crystal let us know that her homeschool co-op began with a wonderful mom named Heidi, and together they organized the group that now numbers 8 families and 19 children altogether. Crystal first learned about the Adventures of Rush Revere book series listening to The Rush Limbaugh Show, when she heard other parents and kids calling in. The crew sent the group a complimentary copy of Brave Pilgrims and they have now read all five books. The children all love the series, and her oldest son’s favorite quotation is: “unless you know your history, you are destined to repeat it.”

Absolutely great job Crystal and family. We cannot wait to hear more about your adventures as a homeschool family!

Homeschool FOM – July 2017

Learning by Leaps and Bounds with Liberty

Homeschool Family of the Month – July 2017

How adorable is Debbie’s family of South Carolina? They have been homeschooling for a year and a half, avoiding the politics they see in public schools. We learned more about the family when we spoke with them recently on the phone. Debbie heard about the Rush Revere series listening to The Rush Limbaugh Show on the radio and bought the books, one by one, for her children. The kids LOVE the books, and she is happy with the way the authors “make history real to her children.” The family reads the books out loud and has fun with the characters, and Debbie reports that all have a “new found love for early American history, so much so that it’s tough to get them to move on to other parts of history because they want to keep learning about it.” So perfect!

Debbie also shared a really cute story. Her daughters love Liberty from the books, and the Crew recently sent them Liberty plush dolls. Her daughter glued straws together and made horse jumping fences! You girls sound a lot like Freedom and Maddie – so creative and smart! This lovely family is part of a homeschool co-op of 100 families, and plan to use the Rush Revere series, handout materials and study guides for classes next fall.

LOUISIANA

Keira from Louisiana is a brave eleven-year-old who has spent a lot of time in the hospital over the past year and a half. Recently, when Keira went in for an appointment, her mom told her to grab a book from the shelf to read together. She grabbed Rush Revere and the Brave Pilgrims and her Liberty plush. As her mom filled out paperwork at the doctor’s office, Keira read peacefully, which was new for her. Over time as Keira kept reading, her confidence grew and she began to read more and more on her own. It was the first time she had done this, and her interest in reading has continued to grow ever since. Wonderful!

INDIANA

Homeschooler Cameron from Indiana is a talented sculptor. After reading about Rush Revere and Liberty’s time travel adventures, he decided to craft a small wood sculpture of each. They look so cool don’t they? Look at Liberty’s hooves! Cameron sounds a lot like our friend Paul Revere, who was a silversmith by day. His mom told us that she brought the book series to use in her homeschooling group, but soon found they were missing from the school room. Later, she found them in Cameron’s room, because he loved them so much! He now goes to sleep every night listening to the CD’s.

OHIO

Pamela, a homeschool mom from Ohio, has been a wonderful advocate for American history education using the Adventures of Rush Revere book series. After receiving a set of books and posters from the crew, she put up a display for her homeschool co-op. Pamela said the books were a big hit with the other parents and they loved the resources available on the website. She let us know that, “The idea of reinforcing history through a fun learning experience inspired several of the moms.” This is so wonderful to hear, thank you Pamela!

Homeschool Group’s History Day is a Hit with Revere

Nebraska

Joshua from Nebraska dressed up for his homeschool group’s History Day as Paul Revere. Paul Revere was Joshua’s favorite historical character in the books and he couldn’t wait to share his report with us! When we asked Joshua who his favorite crew member was, he quickly replied “Tommy”. Do you think it’s because they are both football players? They kind of look alike too don’t they? Either way, Joshua makes a great Paul Revere and we are proud of him for reading all five books!

Homeschool FOM – June 2017

A Colonial Field Trip With Rush Revere

Homeschool Family of the Month – June 2017

Isn’t this a fantastic photo? This is Melanie and her brother and sister from Baltimore, Maryland in front of the Governor’s Palace during homeschool week in Williamsburg, Virginia! Before they visited they read Rush Revere and the American Revolution in their homeschool group so they would know more about the colonial time period. Melanie is really funny too! She said that her favorite room was “the ballroom and the large portraits of the King and Queen on the wall, not that the Patriots liked them much!” That is so hilarious, Liberty is laughing his head off!

We called Melanie’s mom and learned more about their homeschool group. They are part of a co-op of 11 families made up of 40 children. They used the Rush Revere curriculum and it helped them pass literary reviews. They really like the way the stories are written and how they “engage and keep the kids’ attention.” All have recently read book 5, and as they live near Washington, D.C., they are excited to follow the adventures to see the National Archives and Fort McHenry. Don’t forget to try Liberty’s Top Secret Mission: OPERATION MILK SHAKE, and have fun!
