I’m a sucker for educational entertainment, it’s true. And when we caught a couple of episodes of Liberty’s Kids on PBS and my children were riveted, I knew the producers were on to something—what a great way to get kids interested in history, without being boring or pedantic.
Since then I’ve been waiting for the DVD set to drop in price, and today it finally did. Get the entire 40-episode series of Liberty’s Kids on DVD from Amazon for $32.49 shipped (about half off), and your kids will learn all about our country’s history while watching a cartoon.
And because I know someone will ask: I’d say this is appropriate for kids maybe 6+, though my middle schooler enjoys it as well. Obviously the older they are, the more they’ll get out of it. But part of the beauty is that it’s appealing to a pretty broad age range.
