If you know me well, you know I love a good book. Now that I have been hooked on audio books and audio theater it has opened up a whole new world of listening for me and the family. A few weeks ago we were asked to review the newest audio drama from Heirloom Audio Productions called With Lee in Virginia. It should come as no surprise that we gobbled it up as soon as it arrived at our doorstep.
Heirloom Audio Productions is passionate about bringing history to life in exciting and engaging audio dramas. With their newest release title, With Lee in Virginia, the have set the bar high and it does not disappoint.
We received With Lee in Virginia CD set, Digital Download of the Study Guide, Soundtrack, and a printable poster. This story retells history’s most daring expeditions filled with character and courage of fifteen year old Vincent Wingfield as he finds himself in a thrilling adventure as he joins ranks among the cavalry of the Northern Virginia Army during the Civil War.
The two CD set of this high energy and fast pace story focused on building character for the next generation while bringing history lessons to life within the chapters. With the extremely high quality audio reenactments, this story it is perfect for ages 6 years old to adult. The realities of war do shine through, just so you are aware. However, they are presented in a way that is not too overwhelming for younger listeners.
The two disk story comes in a handy fold out CD case with a blue and grey CD and also includes a study guide booklet. As part of this review, I also received a PDF copy of the study guide which is just an expanded edition of the one included in the CD set. The study guide also includes three brief Bible study suggestions to help you and your child gain a clearer understanding of godly character.
Because we are on the go almost every day of the week we strictly listened to this while traveling. The girls were silent as the story played, eagerly listening for each detail. Sometimes we would stay in the van until a chapter had ended just so we could hear the end of the story. I really like the fact that the stories where numbered so we could find our spot quickly.
So, what’s the bottom line?! We love this CD! I would recommend this product to any and all looking to add a bit of family friendly audio / radio drama into the homes.
