RUSH: Folks, will you indulge me? I need to share with you some reviews that people have sent us about the first children’s book, Rush Revere and the Brave Pilgrims. As you know — well, you may not know — last Friday we announced the second in the Rush Revere series. Rush Revere and the First Patriots. It’s available now for pre-order, goes on sale on March the 11th, and the focal point is the Boston Tea Party, but it was so much fun to write. I’m tempted here to tell you what’s in it, and I, of course, am not going to. But it’s just really, really good. And the feedback, the reaction that we are getting — we’ve got the Adventures of Rush Revere page, I call it the portal at our TwoIfByTea.com website. And we have built that out, you know, much as we have the Limbaugh Broadcast Museum at RushLimbaugh.com. And that is one of the greatest, I think of all time, graphic creations. We have one of the greatest graphic artists in the history of websites at RushLimbaugh.com.
And we’re doing much the same thing at TwoIfByTea.com. We’re building that out with a similar premise, but instead of a broadcast museum it’s a town hall. It’s where people can go and leave messages, post pictures of their kids or the kids can post pictures reading the book, send fan mail to the characters in the book, and the feedback that we are getting is just phenomenal. I can’t tell you how gratified I feel and how humbled and how excited. To me, it’s a big deal because we’ve set out here to target a new audience, people that will not, you know, young children are not gonna listen to talk radio unless they’re with their parents. And yet we’re all very proud of what we do here. We want as many people to be exposed to it, learn from it, believe in the greatness of America, want everybody to know it. So the books are a mission to take the values and the beliefs of the program here to that demographic. And every bit of feedback we get that shows us it’s working is a big upper. Here are three reviews, and these are just randomly chosen.
“Dear Rush: My kids loved this book. They never wanted to stop reading. And they can’t wait ’til the next one comes out. At first, I thought your book was a little long on fantasy and a little short on history. But after we finished I grilled the kids pretty good about the historical facts, and even my six-year-old was answering like a pro. Well done, Rush.” They rated it five out of five stars.
“I read this book out loud to my eight-year-old, Nettie, my 11-year-old son, my 13-year-old daughter, who are the primary audience of your book. They all enjoyed and begged me to read it again to them. When I was taking breaks I made about a 25-question quiz on the Mayflower, the Pilgrims, and the first Thanksgiving. We played the game with the rest of the family members yesterday after Thanksgiving dinner, and the kids remembered all the details. They beat the adults, no problem. It’s a fun and educational book, all in one.”
And the next one is: “We recently finished listening to the audio book and my three older kids were begging us to listen to the story again. It’s a fabulous time travel story for the younger generation, but as parents we enjoyed it, too. I like the idea of bringing American history back to life in a fun, interactive way for the younger generations. Well worth it to read the story to the kids.”
This is over the top great. These reviews are coming in and people are sharing their thoughts and I just have to acknowledge all of you who are writing and thank you from the bottom of our hearts. Again, the next book is Rush Revere and the First Patriots, and it’s available for pre-order now at all the usual places that you would go: Barnes & Noble, Amazon, iBooks, Books a Million. It’s everywhere, as it should be.
