The Adventures of Munford! Review And A Special Offer For My Readers!

Have you met Munford? I wasn't entirely sure what to think about a series of stories about a
water molecule at first! Guess what? I'm completely sold

Munford the adventurous molecule has won my heart. I'm a serious fan. 

All three of my boys - ages 5 years up to 10 years - sat, captivated by the story of 
Munford's adventures during the American Revolution! The historically correct tale
 finds our character gallivanting about across the pond from one continent to another. He gets 
himself into secretive meetings, where plans of a revolt are taking place. He joins a full speed ride 
on horse back with the likes of Paul Revere delivering the message which could mean 
certain death as a traitor if and when they are caught! We traveled with him and were introduced to 
one important character after another whose influence was critical in gaining American Independence

It wasn't the accuracy of this creative tale that won me over - or even the historic detail woven
 into the story, but the fact that my children (whom are all quite active - we like to say "outdoorsy")
actually sat still and listened intently. They didn't even want me to put it down! I read until I
 couldn't read any more while they were glued to each and every word. Seriously. It shocked me too. 

They loved knowing that it was (mostly) a true story- (if molecules had great personalities - 
it very well could be). It gave them insight into the kind of courage and fortitude it took for
 our founding fathers to take steps necessary to secure our freedom as Americans. 

It was a wonderful introduction to The American Revolution and provided pertinent information
 in a format which was both easily understood, and exciting enough to retain for future use. 
 *I love to come across products which facilitate and inspire learning in a style that helps them 
actually remember what they've learned! Much as your children can recall the details of their
favorite bedtime story - mine can now recount the pertinent information surrounding The
 American Revolution and we will re-visit the story with enthusiasm time and again! 

We enjoyed reading aloud with the family, but the series also make wonderful  "chapter books"
 for your young readers. There are about 140 pages in each book in the series. 

We're using The Adventures of Munford - The American Revolution as a terrific jumping off 
point for our studies in History, Reading, American Government, Current Events, and
 Geography.  We are working backwards a bit now for Thanksgiving, and it has served as the
 perfect platform in teaching them about WHY our forefathers took such a risk in coming to the
 "New World" in the first place.  

Right now- you can even get it for FREE when you purchase the other three books in the set 
from the links below (I'm thinking Christmas y'all) :
