“Rush Revere and the brave pilgrims,” is about a teacher who comes as a substitute and teaches students. His command over unique methods about time traveling adventures, turning into American History is a surprise of the element for most of the students.
Rush Revere, the substitute teacher, often talks about the history and jumps to the year 1620 and briefs the students about the shades regarding Puritan emigration to America.
There are perhaps many particulars Rush Revere reveals to his students, which aren’t in modern Social Studies books, but he can provide it rightfully.
He uses a smartphone to show a video feed to the students so that they can grasp and appreciate what it took to set up a colony in the New World.
After providing the students with enough knowledge about the history, two students join him on new adventures. These adventures include how they enter the Mayflower passengers in their expedition to America by crossing the ocean.
While on this journey, they make many acquaintances and meet many people who were involved in leading the expedition in the year 1620 to Plymouth.
After witnessing all the obstacles and suffering, they concluded at highly appreciating the courage of these early settlers and endured the massive suffering Pilgrims exhibited.
Coming back from their adventures to modern America, they pledge that they won’t forget all about it. And at the end of the book, Rush Revere questions, “Where do we go next?” The book doesn’t only end at this question, but they provide with an interactive website where the students can ask questions whatever they want from the author.
Although, it provides a perfect exception with details like dates, names, and places; there have a lot of things wrong with Rush Revere. It commences with the author’s note offering a ranging definition of exceptional American reality.
The statement that how America is a land built on real freedom and individual liberty, and it guards both around the world. And Limbaugh goes on to explain that people believed how every individual was free. Now that statement questions anyone who is familiar with the history. All individuals? And free?
Moving on with the narration of the book, it talks about how a substitute history teacher dresses like his hero, Paul, and then narrates the takeoff on the Magic Tree House and Magic School Bus. All these details have no charm, and the text is too wordy.
There are many pages which mostly filled spaces like the banter between Rush and Liberty, and not only that but the dreary explanation of how time traveling operates.
The metaphors of Rush Revere throughout the book are identical to his other book “Two if by Tea.” Rush Revere concludes at the point that it was after the Pilgrims stopped sharing the profits that accomplishment was there. As for factual inaccuracies, Paul Revere never said that the British were coming. Despite its many shortcomings, it generated enough demand, recognition to the author’s celebrity.
