We love stories ‘round here. Papa tells the craziest stories sometimes, and the kids hang on his every word. When this product came up for review, I knew I wanted to try it! I am talking about Beloved Books, a company that has shared with us wholesome stories that are not lacking in excitement and adventure!
Way back in ‘39, Paul Hutchins began writing the Sugar Creek Gang series. 36 books in this series! Beloved Books got a great reader (or dramatizer?), Paul Ramseyer, to read all 36 of the Sugar Creek Gang books! We are talking over 100 hours of good stuff!
The collection is broken down into several volumes, Sugar Creek Gang, Volume I CD set, being the volume I was sent to review.Here are the stories you get in the CD set:
- The Swamp Robber
- The Killer Bear
- The Winter Rescue
- The Lost Campers
- Chicago Adventure
- The Secret Hideout
These have been great for Quiet Time for HR and EK (SA doesn’t sit and listen, but I bet she’s getting it.) as well as those other times when a break is needed. I can tell you that the Christmas trip to NC will likely include one of these stories! I like how they appeal to my girls and my boy. There is a lot going on in one of these stories, that we only sat through one whole story once. We stop, and return later … which actually gives time to think and talk and ramp up for the next section!
What I LOVE is the God-message that is clear and present, relatable, if you will. The stories are read straight out of the book, and the books are so full of rich language, and a connecting of God to so many things, from nature to even things we sing and say! It’s as lovely for the children as it is for the adults!
For a nickel shy of $55 dollars, you have hours and hours of wholesome, exciting listening pleasure! Head to Beloved Books and check out the other volumes. Be sure to stick around to see what else they offer – they have so many great stories!
