The Midnight Ride of Paul Revere by Henry Wadsworth LongfellowThere 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
