Paul Revere in Singable Picture Books (songs and wishes)

Posted on: April 30, 2012

In the last couple weeks, I’ve run across all sort of things Paul Revere.

John Singleton Copley’s portrait of Paul Revere (which hangs in the Boston Museum of Fine Arts)

Below are representative samples of each song, poem and book I’ve found so far:

From the poem “The Midnight Ride of Paul Revere” by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, come many beautiful picture books, including:

*

Steve Martin wrote a wonderful, factually correct, song about Paul Revere (told from from the point of view of his horse who was named “Brown Beauty”) for which I’m desperately pining for a picture book:
