The stories revolve around the adventures of six boys who fish a lot and go barefoot. The stories are appropriate for all to listen to, while relating well to a boy’s adventurous side. The dad of the boy telling the stories is the head of his home and the wife is respectful. The children obey without talking back; some narrative does tell the struggle going on inside the boy’s mind.
These are good old fashioned stories. Not full of modern frills. Our family loves them. I just did a google search and the only CDs I could find were $55 for a volume which is six stories. (www.sugarcreekgang.com) Our Christian book store in Minneapolis use to carry the volume cases for less than that, but it has been ten years since I bought them. These are a find if you see them for less, give them a try. (I would say these are good for any age, preschoolers that can sit and listen to a story would enjoy them)
The second series we love, love, love is Jonathan Park. These are put out by Vision Forum (www.visionforum.com/)and are full of creation facts. There are two families that have started a creation museum together and now go on adventures to help promote creation facts to the general public. They have formed the Creation Response Team that takes assignments and has to overcome obstacles and “bad guys” to get the Truth out.
The families are wonderful in how they relate to each other. Respectful is how they live and speak. Their contact with unbelievers is winsome yet, never shrinking back. The creation facts are amazing and listening to these stories is such an enjoyable way to learn. Plus we are learning by their example how to relate to one another and how to speak boldly for Christ.
Add this to your science for the year or just listen to them during down time, they will grip you. Each volume is approximately five hours of listening enjoyment at only $25 per volume. If this price is still too much, consider going in on them with another family, these are a must listen to. (These are probably for at least school age children and perhaps even third grade and up. They are not too technical, but a little more understanding would be helpful in following the stories and facts given.)
