We recently spoke with homeschool mom Liz W., who told us a lovely story about the Rush Revere Series crossing the generations. You see, Liz’s father, who adored author Rush Limbaugh, passed away and was never able to meet her children, including son Isaiah.

For Christmas, Liz gave Rush Revere books to the young man, who smiled politely when opening the gift, but was probably thinking – why a book mom? It was emotional for Liz to read a chapter a night to Isaiah, and to share the work of an author her father loved.  Soon, though, he was laughing at Liberty’s jokes, and even asked his mom to read more chapters when his sisters were asleep.

After a few weeks, they completed the book and kept right on reading.  “Isaiah is learning about the White House right now,” Liz recently said, “My dad would have been so proud of him.”

Allison S. of Oregon, let us know about a fun American history game her homeschool group played using Rush Revere and the First Patriots.  To learn about taxation without representation in the Colonial era, they started by playing the roles of King George, Parliament, and a tax collector.

Each student started with a cup full of jellybeans. Then the student playing the role of a member of British Parliament stood and read off specific items of clothing, and an associated number.  If a student was wearing a listed item like “jeans,” that number of jellybeans would be given up.

Quickly the unfair nature of the taxing system in Colonial America became clear, as all jellybeans were given up to taxes.  The next day, when the students role-played Colonists versus King George and Great Britain, the debate became heated! It appears the young colonists were none too happy about the taxes – would a Revolution happen soon? We will have to wait to hear more from Allison, who said the students all learned a lot and had fun!
