My children love to read. It tickles me to see them cuddled up with a book reading throughout the day…and 3 out of 4 are non-readers! One looks at pictures, one tells her own stories and the other just carries it around, occasionally flipping through it. My oldest, who is an avid reader, can be found hiding in a quiet spot reading her favorite book.
Our newest enjoyment has been audio books. They are great for when you are at the table, in the car, or just about anytime! So, this month for the Gabby Moms program we were asked if we’d like to review a bonus product, an audio book from Beloved Books, The Sugar Creek Gang’s Swamp Robber. I jumped at the chance because of my daughter’s fondness for the television series. I must have chosen right because when the CD started playing and she heard what it was, I received the biggest hug followed by, “Oh, thank you, Mommy!”
For those of you that don’t know, the Sugar Creek Gang is a Christian adventure series for boys and girls that was written in 1939 by Paul Hutchens. Several years ago, Paul Ramseyer turned these books into a dramatic audio, read directly from the original books.
Yesterday, on a day trip, we listened to the CDs and almost everyone was captivated. My 18 month old would’ve preferred music, but she was outvoted! What a delightful story to listen to! Paul Ramseyer doesn’t just read the story, he makes the story come alive! The gospel message is presented throughout the series which makes it a great discipleship tool as well. It is an easy to understand, enjoyable audio that is great for the whole family!
