This was one of the best social studies lesson I have taught in years. The students loved the story and the cartoon. The teacher resources made it very easy to differentiate among learning styles and abilities. I truly hope to see lots more of the Pups.

This video was a great addition to our study on Paul Revere and the American Revolution. The students found it entertaining and fun. It was a cute "twist" to the traditional story.

The students loved the first Pups of Liberty DVD. When this new one arrived I immediately told the students about it. They couldn't wait to see it even though we have already moved past the colonial period. They loved it. It was great to see everyone enjoying an educational film that accurately depicted are very difficult time in our country's history. Very well done! I would highly recommend this film and can't wait for the next offering in the Pups of Liberty Series!!

I use this with a variety of ages of homeschoolers as a supplement to Early American History. While it is appropriate and understandable for younger elementary students, it is so cute and fun that even my older students enjoyed it and learned from it. It brought historical events to life in a much-loved theme involving cute doggies.
