Disclosure- We received a copy of Liberty’s Kids to conduct our review. We received no other payment and all opinions are our 100% our own.
Liberty’s Kids is a wonderful series of cartoon episodes that teaches history lessons but what’s so great about it is that my girls don’t even realize that they are learning. I wasn’t sure how they would respond when I first put the DVD in. I wasn’t sure if they would be interested in a historical cartoon since it is set in a time that is so different from our modern day but I was pleasantly surprised just how much my girls liked this series.
Travel back in time with Benjamin Franklin’s teenage reporters as they confront the real and physical dangers of the American Revolution. Trapped in opposite sides of the war – James an American colonist and Sarah a young English reporter are forced to choose between friendship and allegiance to their countries. All while they try to look after mischievous Henri, a French boy whose comical escapades constantly lead to trouble. Journey through history and discover the high points of the American Revolution through this fun and animated educational adventure!
My girls were hooked from the moment that they watched the first episode and were on the edge of their seats wanting to watch one episode after another. American History from the days of George Washington and Benjamin Franklin really comes alive with Liberty’s Kids. As a mom, I love that they WANT to watch something educational. I think the cartoon works so well because they main characters are young and my girls can relate to them. My girls have already asked if they can bring our DVDs to school to watch with their classes.
This series is packed with incredible voice talent including – Whoopi Goldberg, Walter Cronkite, Kathleen Barr, Billy Crystal, Michael Douglas, Warren Buffett, Liam Neeson and more!!
From my 9 year old:
“I really like watching Liberty’s Kids because it is fun but also educational. When you start watching it, you will want to see the rest to see what happens. I really think other children will enjoy it, too!”
