The poem,The Midnight Ride of Paul Revere [MIDNIGHT RIDE OF PAUL RE -OS], written by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow is beautifully engraved and painted by Christopher Bing in this picture book edition.

Lesson Idea: Ask students to close their eyes as you read aloud the poem.  At the end of each page, ask students to visualize in their minds what they just heard and draw a picture.  After you finish reading, show your students the way Bing visualized the poem.
