If you are looking for a fun way to introduce your children to the time period surrounding the American Revolution, take a peek at this very highly rated series. Amazon has the Liberty’s Kids 4-Disc DVD Series, which contains all 40 episodes for only $6.99 (down from $12.99)!
Here is what one of the Amazon reviewers had to say:
My 8 year-old loves this and we watch an episode almost every day! He is learning a ton about American history and the revolution. It is great how they incorporate all real characters into it. It is exciting, suspenseful, and sometimes humorous. I think he knows more about the American revolution than I ever did because of these DVDs. I enjoy it as well.
If you aren’t familiar with this series, here is a description:
History comes alive in this excellent Emmy and Humanitas Award-nominated 40-episode, animated series about the experiences of two young teens during the American Revolution. Far more than a simple chronicle of the battles and major events of the American Revolution, Liberty’s Kids tells the story of the cultural, scientific, political, and social forces that helped shape America’s fight for independence from the perspective of two young teens from very different backgrounds. Another strength of the series is that legendary historical figures like Benjamin Franklin, George Washington, John Adams, and Abigail Adams come across as real, believable people engaged in a genuine struggle to determine right from wrong and to act in the best interest of their families, community, and country. An amazing cast of voice talent includes Walter Cronkite as Ben Franklin, Dustin Hoffman as Benedict Arnold, Annette Bening as Abigail Adams, Billy Crystal as John Adams, Michael Douglas as Patrick Henry, as well as General Norman Schwarzkopf, Sylvester Stallone, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Ben Stiller, Whoopi Goldberg, and many others.
This movie will also ship for FREE with an Amazon Prime membership, or an order over $35.
