American History: Revolutionary War (Liberty’s Kids DVD Series for $5)

Liberty’s Kids: DVD Series

Recommended for ages 6 – 11

I purchased the Liberty’s Kids: Complete Series DVD set last week at Target.  At only $7.50 it seemed like a great deal, although Amazon currently sells it for $5.00 (which is an even better deal!).  We’ve watched four episodes so far and both my kids love it.
