    good poetry

    "Listen, my children, and you shall hear Of the midnight ride of Paul Revere.." As I have said many times, poetry is not my long suit, although I think good poetry is important, and that is why I have the poetry corner in this newsletter. One of my favorite American poets has always been Henry Wadsworth Longfellow. We had to read three of his epic poems, The Song of Hiawatha, Evangeline, and The Courtship of Miles Standish, (or portions thereof) in high school. Another of his famous poems is "Paul Revere's Ride," which is the first poem taken from his Tales of a Wayside Inn. The poem is actually presented as a story told sometime in the 1860's by the ancient landlord of the Wayside Inn to a group of friends who had gathered around his fireside to swap tales. The Wayside Inn was a real place in Sudbury, MA, which was often visited by Longfellow. It still exists! Our younger son Jeremy had been reading some books for young readers about American history in third grade, so I had him read this one. Charles Santore's illustrations are wonderful. After I Jeremy finished, I asked him, "One if by" what? (land), "And two if by" what? (sea), and he remembered how to complete the lines.

    Book fine; "express shipping" awful

    I'm sure the book was fine, but when I ordered using the express shipping, I was very disappointed. I ordered on a Friday and the person assured me I would have it on Tuesday as I needed it for a class on Wednesday. WELL, it finally got to me on Friday so I returned it unopened to the store as I no longer needed it.

    Take a Ride! Read About Paul Revere!

    I like this picture book because it integrates history, art, and poetry. On each page, life-like illustrations complement poetic prose. Facial expressions and gestures can easily be understood. Although Longfellow originally wrote about Paul Revereâ¿¿s ride over a hundred years ago, the historical premise behind the poetry is still valid and relevant today. The illustrator successfully captures the meaning of Longfellowâ¿¿s words and transforms them into vivid images that enable the reader to feel the drama behind ride. The reader does not have to question the meaning behind the words because the art alone tells the story. An the end the book the author provides further information on the even and a simple map of where Paul Revere traveled. The book in itâ¿¿s entirety is thorough, informative, entertaining and engaging. This book is valuable for all ages, not just younger readers!

    Great book!

    For the last two days I have read Paul Revere's Ride by Longfellow to my 4 and 7 year old. We have learned the history, vocabulary words, the different methods the artist used to illustrate the poem, and many other interesting facts. They are begging for more! What are great book! Longfellow makes history come to life. You can just feel the night air in Revere's face as he so courageously warns the people.

    Fantastic for children about history.

    My daugher brought this when she was on a mission trip to Pennsylvania. It's an exceptional book, a short read and great for adults and especially children. It will keep the short attention span in tack and the mapping in tracing the ride is GREAT!>>>

    Great book for introducing 4-5 year olds to colonial history

    This book was so well illustrated, that both our 3 and 5 year olds, are now interested in learning more about colonial history. While reading the book our 5 year old kept referring back to the map that painted a very visual route of Paul Revere's ride.
