Reading Challenge: Rush Revere
Around the first of the year we challenged C-Bear to read all five of the Rush Revere books, written by Rush Limbaugh. These books are about early American History and the titles are as follows: Rush Revere and the Brave Pilgrims Rush Revere and the First Patriots Rush Revere and the Presidency Rush Revere and the Star Spangled Banner Rush Revere and the American Revolution The challenge we presented to him was that if he could read all five books, he would receive a Liberty plush horse sold by Rush Revere. Well, you need to find what works, right? He really threw himself into it and finished. We did get a Liberty for him. The series is really entertaining, while giving a lot of great historical facts that makes a reader feel as through he/she was there! C-Bear has actually picked up a lot from these books and we recommend them. Want to try this Challenge? Be watching Facebook for a giveaway of Rush Revere and the Brave Pilgrims! Our next challenge we have in mind for him is to read all of the Green Ember series. He has had them all read to him, but the challenge would be for him to read them. The Green Ember series has a wooden Pickett Sword we could get as a prize. While it IS more expensive to do that than Pizza Hut Book-It, it is really fun. Our family loves books and raising readers is something we really strive for.
