Update: This was a fantastic seller at $6.49 last month and has now dropped in price!
I am so excited about this deal! The Liberty’s Kids DVD Set is on sale for just $5.99. This is for all 40 episodes and is on four DVD’s. I have heard this entire set used to sell just to schools for $100 so this is an amazing deal.
Every kid on my Christmas shopping list is getting this and I’m also getting it for our teachers. It gets incredible reviews and I’ve heard that kids love watching these. After reading the reviews, I’m planning on getting it for a kindergartener up to a pre-teen.
Check out this description from Amazon:
History comes alive in this excellent Emmy and Humanitas Award-nominated 40-episode, animated series about the experiences of two young teens during the American Revolution. Far more than a simple chronicle of the battles and major events of the American Revolution, Liberty’s Kids tells the story of the cultural, scientific, political, and social forces that helped shape America’s fight for independence from the perspective of two young teens from very different backgrounds. Sarah is a young English woman living in America who maintains a strong sense of loyalty to England and James is a printer’s apprentice living the American dream, but feeling the constraints of British oppression.
Working together on Benjamin Franklin’s newspaper the “Pennsylvania Gazette,” Sarah and James often find their interpretations of current events differ markedly and the pair constantly grapples with tough issues like slavery, self-governance, fair representation, and the role of women in battle and politics. The juxtaposition of the two teens’ opposing viewpoints sparks spirited arguments in the series and inspires a fuller understanding of the complexity of the events and issues of the American Revolution for both Franklin’s newspaper audiences and modern viewers. Another strength of the series is that legendary historical figures like Benjamin Franklin, George Washington, John Adams, and Abigail Adams come across as real, believable people engaged in a genuine struggle to determine right from wrong and to act in the best interest of their families, community, and country.
