There’s nothing quite like listening to an exciting story being told by a good storyteller. All throughout my life, I have escaped through the words of others to go back in time, travel to distant lands, or just live out wild and crazy adventures in my mind. Good storytelling is simply a gift to be shared with the world. It allows you to open your mind and let your imagination carry you away, without fancy visual effects or elaborate movie sets.
When I learned about Heirloom Audio Productions, I was interested to see how my children would react to these audiobooks. They, like me, generally lose focus when someone else is reading to them, absorbing more through reading than listening. However, I was pleasantly surprised by their reaction as they groaned when we reached our destination and we needed to turn off the car. The narration and voice acting allowed them to visualize the tales as they unfolded, only to be awoken from their daydreams when it was time to stop listening.
Heirloom Audio Productions are not like the audiobooks that I have experienced in the past. Rather than simply being told a story, listeners travel back in time through these audio theater features as narrators and characters relive history through beautifully written adventures. These productions feature world-class actors and stunning audio effects, which work together to engage the listener’s imagination, making it easy to imagine yourself alongside the characters, playing a “movie” in your mind.
Currently, there are five titles available, each covering a different era in history, with a plan to release more in the near future. You can listen to the popular tales of the Extraordinary Adventures of G.A. Henty, including The Dragon and the Raven, In Freedom’s Cause, With Lee in Virginia, and Under Drake’s Flag , the recently released Baric the Briton and soon-to-be released Cat of Bubastes. These historically accurate fictional tales are captivating for young and old alike to enjoy. We’re looking forward to seeing what stories will be coming next!
For me, what truly sets them apart is the Christian history focus, weaving stories of faith, belief, and Christian morals into extremely accurate historical tales. I can feel good about what my children are learning while knowing they’re being solidly entertained. Heirloom Audio Productions would be a great addition to a Christian homeschooler’s curriculum or just for a wholesome, historical family entertainment option.
