The beauty of this book lies not in the poem, which many American children have heard (Listen my children and you shall hear, of the midnight ride of Paul Revere) . The beauty for me was in this specific edition copy, illustrated by Christopher Bing. Opening the hardcover book I was greeted with beautiful period artwork, showing items laying on the desk, old reading glasses, a quill pen, letter sealing wax with a stamp, and ink pot, and waitwhat is this? Right inside the cover is a folded letter [...]

This poem book tells the story about the historic night of the ride of Paul Revere to warn people that the British were coming.This book is a poem about Paul Revere’s ride but the most exciting part of this book are the artist’s pictures on each page. The imagery used in each line of the poem is brought to life in the pictures on the opposite pages. The books’ format is mostly picture with some words from the poem along the side. Some of the pictures are interactive and have letters to ope [...]

This book takes the poem by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow and puts it to illustrations. There are also the historic elements and information included, along with some historic looking documents about this time in history.I gave this book 4 stars because of the content. I loved how this poem was used to relate to this time period in history. Because the author did that, I can use it to integrate poetry studies and history at the same time!I can use this book to study the American Revolution, Paul Re [...]

Basically true narrative poem that I knew by heart at one time. I like how the rhythm of the verses reminds me of a horse galloping. Every American child should know this poem.

The Midnight Ride of Paul Revere, by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow is a representational historical picture book for ages seven and older. It poetically describes the famous midnight ride of Paul Revere, but not just the ride, it details the events leading up to his ride and some of the events after. This book should be utilized as a group assignment. Group work is an important social skill needed in the job/career world. Being able to work with a team or a partner is a huge plus and usually a must [...]

"Listen, my children, and you shall hearOf the midnight ride of Paul Revere"This book is a treasure and I am so glad that we discovered it at our local library in time for Independence Day. Most adults will be quite familiar with Longfellow's famous poem about the scrappy and resourceful early American patriots, and it achieves new resonance with Christopher Bing's beautiful illustrations. As well as I know the poem that immortalized "One, if by land, and two, if by sea" (the agreed-upon lantern [...]

1. Genre: Poetry2. Summary: This poetry book is about an American hero, Paul Revere, and his memorable ride through Massachusetts to warn people that the British were coming to attack. Included are wonderful illustrations that help capture events revealed in the poem. 3. Critique:(a) Imagery (b) The author does an excellent job using figurative language to create images in the poem while telling a story. For instance, similes are used to enhance the reader’s experience and create mood within t [...]

Picture Book Log: PoetryReview Source: textbook pg. 240This story takes you along for the ride with Paul Revere on that dark and dreary night in 1775. The beat of the poem as you read almost matches the gallop of the horse on which he rode into town.The story follows a "dark theme" in all of the pictures. Just by flipping through the pages you can tell that the story takes place late at night. There are big full color pictures on every page, and then on some pages there is an added sketch that g [...]

This historical fiction picturebook was actually one of my favorites to have my mother read to me when I was younger. The poem was written by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow in 1860 and tells the true, but partially fictionalized, story of Paul Revere's famous ride to warn of the British invasion. The poem has a steady rhyme scheme that engages young readers and encourages some memorization. Charles Santore's vivid illustrations convey the sense of adventure and triumph intended by the poem. The cove [...]

Beautiful modern (but "classical") engravings and interesting accoutrements engage the kids long before the poetry clicks. Bought this more for myself, but was pleasantly surprised when the kiddos picked it for bedtime—more than once. Found it next to Casey At the Bat: A Ballad of the Republic Sung in the Year 1888, another classic poem brought to life beautifully by the same illustrator (Christopher Bing).

“A Note on the Preparation of This Book” explicates the meaning of “graved and painted.” It’s an impressive mixture of drawing, painting, computer photography, and image manipulation. Paired with the use of a typeface that’s contemporary with the events, it gives the book a feeling of historical verisimilitude. In addition to beautifully illustrating Longfellow’s famous poem, Bing includes a brief historically accurate account of Revere’s well organized network of riders and what [...]

My mother read this to me for the first time when I was younger. At the time, I believe that it was a children's illustrated copy, and might have been edited a little for a younger audience. I picked up this copy as a teenager, and read it for the first time as an adult. Although I love the poem itself, as a student of history in college, I was a little disappointed to find that like so many other moments in American history, Revere's famous ride was greatly exaggerated. The ride was completed b [...]

Poetry. I enjoyed this picture book! I thought the illustrator did a wonderful job tying in the pictures with Henry Wadsworth Longfellow's famous poem (originally published as "Paul Revere's Ride"). The illustrations were interesting and almost cartoon-like. This would be a great read-aloud for the lower grade level classrooms and during a lesson to introduce poetry. I especially enjoyed the last two pages which gave a brief summary of the American Revolution and a map of Paul Revere's ride. All [...]

I used to love this poem as a child; but, years of studying literature and far better poets has soiled it for me. Normally, I'm not one to complain about rhyme scheme, foot, meter, etc. but Longfellow just wrote in such a disjointed pattern (constantly switching his poetic patterns) that I found it extremely hard to enjoy. It just seems very amateur.[return][return]I gave this an extra star because Christopher Bing's artistic adaptation is beautiful.

"The midnight ride of Paul Revere" is about Paul Revere's ride to warn the town that the British were coming. This book goes through his ride though the town and tells how he saved his town.I liked this book because it was a rhyming book. I didn't like the illustrations as much but the rhyming scheme made it fun to read.This book could be used in a classroom to help students understand different rhyme schemes. It also could be used for the students to enjoy.

Ok, I was waiting for the copy machine at school to warm up and there was an old English lit. book just lying there. As I skimmed through it, this caught my eye. I always remembered "on if by land or two if by sea", but I never remembered which it ended up being. Not to spoil your fun, but it was the sea. It was also a LOT shorter than I remembered from school. I finished reading it before the copier warmed up. (ok, I guess it was only an excerpt!)

I LOVE this book! It is so gorgeous and well done. I once sold 15 copies to a single customer for holiday gifts. My favorite spread is the shadow trailing behind Mr. Revere as he rides to warn the citizenry.

Bold and colorful prints capture this classic story/poem about this significant event in history. The color scheme sets an adventureous mood and evokes a dramatic tone. This book would be good for students in 3rd through 5th grade

took me awhile to get my bearings with the maps on the endpapers. the notes at the end and reproduction of Paul Revere's deposition are definitely worthy of reading. I could see this being used in an high school course.

It was exciting. Hehe, I couldn't get the first lines out of my head after my family played Wheel of Fortune and the quotation was from the beginning of the 'Midnight Ride.' I had to get the book. This was an enjoyable read from history and well worth it.
