Paul Revere's Midnight Ride

Greg Harlin's illustrations do much to help Paul Krensky engage children in the tale of Paul Revere's Midnight RideReview here

While told in picture book format, the author provides quite a bit of information about the event and does not fall into the trap of inaccuracies and mythology that some even longer tales present.

This is a great book for teachers, parents, or homeschoolers who want an accurate account of Revere's ride to share with children. The artwork is worth discussing with older readers. It would be great to read Wadsworth's poem and compare it to the historical details presented in this and other accurate children's books on the subject.
