Rush Limbaugh selection in children’s book competition causes a stir



(CNN) - Rush Limbaugh - radio host, conservative firebrand and... children's book author of the year?

The Children’s Book Council and its Every Child a Reader program released on Thursday their author-of-the-year finalists for their annual Children’s and Teen Choice Book Awards.

Limbaugh is one of the four finalists, and his nomination has prompted outrage on social media, given the host’s often-incendiary nature.

Limbaugh's book is titled, "Rush Revere and The Brave Pilgrims: Time-Travel Adventures with Exceptional Americans" – a time-traveling tale of colonial America and the latest of two books in the "Rush Revere Series" published last year by Simon & Schuster.

Recent release at #1 and his 1st book is currently at #4.

Hope that they emulate Harry Potter in going to the big screen with these books.

Rush certainly has the financial clout to make it happen....

I  bought Rush Revere and The Brave Pilgrims for my son last fall. We read  it together, and it was very well done.  A fun and educational read for kids and adults alike that teaches kids about the origins of the  Pilgrims, their ordeals and trials in the new world, and a flattering portrayal of the Indians they befriended.  Before doing so I read the reviews, and the funny thing was it was given high marks by even some of the  liberal reviewers, who were prepared to rip it apart, but came away after reading it saying very positives things about the book.

I catch Rush on the car radio at lunch sometimes... I didn't know he wrote a book?! </ sarcasm>

It's also a high quality product.  Paper, color, illustrations, the whole ball of wax.

Rush doesn't mess around with mediocrity.
Character still matters.  It always matters.
