One if by land, two if by sea…. So began the midnight ride of Paul Revere.But before he was a member of the Sons of Liberty, before he led raiders in the Boston Tea Party, before he was a silversmith, he was one of nine children growing up in colonial Boston.Adler’s biography traces the life of this famous American patriot with insight into his youth, his family, and his professional life. Some of Paul Revere’s lasting fame is due to “Paul Revere’s Ride,” a ballad written by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow. Child-friendly illustrations of the period help readers see Revere’s world, and back matter includes additional details and a time line of Revere’s adventures. For almost thirty years, David Adler’s Picture Book Biography series has profiled famous people who changed the world. Colorful, kid-friendly illustrations combine with Adler’s “expert mixtures of facts and personality” (Booklist) to introduce young readers to history through compelling biographies of presidents, heroes, inventors, explorers, and adventurers. These books are ideal for first and second graders interested in history or who need reliable sources for school book reports.
