The Midnight Ride of Paul Revere by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

There are several illustrators that have put pen and color to Longfellows famous poem, but Ted Rands stands out to me. His illustrations are beautiful, life-like and telling. The images stick with you wonderfully and bring the poem alive.

Definitely recommend this one!

Ages: 4 - 8

This poem is the origin of the famous saying one if by land two if by sea. On April 18th, , Paul Revere goes on his famous midnight ride. Paul Revere silently rows to the opposite shore and waits while the moon rises and the Somerset , a British ship, moves through the water. He quietly climbs the tower of the Old North Church looking down below at the churchyard. All of a sudden, something catches his attention in the distance: a line of boats heading toward the shore. Paul Revere is impatient to ride and stares at the Old North Church waiting for a signal; he sees a glimmer of light and jumps onto his horse.
