Heirloom Audio Productions: With Lee in Virginia {Schoolhouse Crew Review}

tosvirginia
I’ve found that one of the best ways for my children to learn history is through age appropriate video documentaries, audio books, and in visiting many different types of field trip destinations.  During the Summer season, my family had the opportunity to go on vacation for several days. Our destination was several hours from home and that meant a good amount of time would be spent in the car. I’d been pondering activities to do in the car to and from to keep the entire family occupied that would be interesting, engaging, and educational.  My daughter tends to get  car sick when playing on electric devices and when reading books in the car so those options were completely out. However, a good audio drama seemed to be an excellent choice.

As part of the Schoolhouse Crew Review team, I was given the opportunity to share my thoughts upon Heirloom Audio Productions latest audio theatrical drama adapted from a book, by G.A. Henty. This particular tale  presents the history of the civil war with focus on Confederate generals Thomas “Stonewall” Jackson and Robert E. Lee. With Lee in Virginia includes a physical 2 CD set, a digital download study guide, MP3 soundtrack, and a few other things. The package  has everything one would need to delve deeply into this portion of  American history in a fun, adventurous, and  memorable way.

Heirloom Audio Productions: In Freedom’s Cause {Schoolhouse Crew Review}

My children like learning history through age appropriate video documentaries and audio books.  The more exciting and adventurous it is, the better. Honestly, who would want to sit and listen to a poorly narrated monotone voice-over for an extended amount of time? Certainly, not me.  I’ve found that with well done curriculum, once I bring something up from their lessons of past they tend to recall important information far better. I can’t stress enough on how it’s so important to offer children engaging ways to study that appeal to their interests and learning styles.  Learning should pique curiosity and the imagination. We as parents have the opportunity to nurture that with the right tools &  resources!

As part of the Schoolhouse Crew Review team, I jumped at the opportunity to share my thoughts upon Heirloom Audio Productions latest audio theatrical drama adapted from a book, by G.A. Henty. This particular tale with a Christian perspective presents the history of William Wallace and King Robert The Bruce in an exciting way. I received the In Freedom’s Cause Single Package which includes a physical 2 CD set, a digital download study guide, MP3 soundtrack, and a digital copy of The Prayer of William Wallace. The package  has everything one would need to complete a great study and is very reasonably priced at just $29.97 plus shipping and handling. Continue reading
