The first of a three-book story arc about the American Revolution, The Redcoats Are Coming follows Patrick and Beth as they assist the revolutionaries by waking up the sleeping citizens of 1775 Concord before the Redcoats come. In this adventure, the cousins meet Paul Revere, Samuel Adams, and John Hancock. They help smuggle musket balls, sound the alarm that the Redcoats are coming, and deliver a secret message to Paul Revere. Along the way they learn that most of the revolutionaries leaned on God’s direction and even pastors helped in the cause.
Christian parents and teachers will appreciate the historical facts as well as the biblical worldview training their kids and students will absorb. The kids will appreciate the excitement and tension of an America at war with England, and in some ways, with itself. A curriculum for Christian schools and homeschool families will be available for download at $3.99.
This book is a great resource for kids to use to learn about history in a fun and exciting way. The only thing i dislike is the way it is "dumb" down for younger kids so kids passed age 7 aren't really going to like reading them at all. But all in all a good resource for that age group (7 and under). I says it is suppose to be for ages 7 and up but i feel like that is untrue. I would recommend this to homeschool families.
I recieved this book for review through Tyndale House Publishers.
