Paul Revere's Imperfect Ride

After all, Paul was only human. Read about his mistakes and his successes during the Revolutionary War time. For example, did you know he didn't even finish his big "midnight ride"? Even forgot his riding spurs. Of course, to be fair, he did ride as far as he did by outsmarting the English soldiers. All in all, Paul did a pretty good job, but nobody's perfect. (story biography: Revolutionary War; intermediate grades)

The students enjoyed the story, illustrations, and humor. They also enjoyed the "What happened next?" opportunity to make predictions and get instant feedback. I had activities to go along with the book and I enjoyed how nicely they tied in.

A lighthearted look at history!

Jean Fritz offers a wonderful contribution to the enjoyment of American history with And Then What Happened, Paul Revere? As in the author's other history books for young readers, the story and participants are brought to life with accuracy and vibrant humor that few other writers could match. Highly recommended to kids and their parents!

Young readers would find the information appealing. Not only does Fritz give authentic accounts of Revere's ride through Boston, Concord and Lexington, but she adds specific details to each. For example, she tells of how Revere and Adams had to return to a tavern in Lexington to get a trunk of important papers Adams had left, and how they walked right through the American lines in the process. While the actual text is informative yet light-hearted and easy to read, the illustrations provide essential support. This adds to the simplicity of the book.

Fritz in her notes adds to the events so that the reader gets a true account of history.
