Jul. 3rd, 2015

Y'all with kids who want a quick and easy and relatively neutral way to tell the story of the US Revolutionary War and why tomorrow is our "birthday":
There's a series on DVD (cheap DVDs on amazon, free (with ads) on YouTube) called "Liberty's Kids," your basic fictionalized history cartoon. When I heard about it I assumed it world be all American Exceptionalism and might, but then I saw Walter Cronkite was involved so I gave it a shot. And it's not hard to watch, and pretty accessible and reasonably well done.

I'm sure Owen doesn't get all the nuances of that kind of history but I think it's a good launch pad for future discussion.
