A delightful celebration of American heritage

"Part of the "History's Heroes" DVD series, Paul Revere: Midnight Ride is a 3-D, computer animated video for young people presenting American history in a lively and entertaining format. The friendly Ellie the Eagle encourages poet Ralph Waldo Emerson to retell the story of Paul Revere's crucial ride to Lexington, in order to warn colonial leaders that the British had mobilized. Half a day later, the "shot heard 'round the world" marked the beginning of the American war for independence. Ideal for students ages eight and up, Paul Revere: Midnight Ride reinforces learning through humor, engaging storytelling, and catchy songs by Marty Panzer and Don Grady. A delightful celebration of American heritage, highly recommended for children's library DVD shelves. 30 minutes, English and Spanish subtitles, color."

"I bought this DVD to enhance my students' knowledge of Paul Revere, since they had been studying the poem "The Midnight Ride of Paul Revere". THEY LOVED IT! I found it was a wonderful resource for explaining the events leading to the beginning of the American Revolution. The 3D animation was well done and grabbed the kids' attention and the music was exciting. A song plays during the credits that just drew the students' out of their seats! The captions on the screen explain where each event takes place and the narrator, Ellie, talks to the viewers at their level. If you are looking for a biography of Paul Revere, this is not it. If you are looking for an exhilarating walk through April 18, 1775, you definately should add this to your children's library!"
