Heirloom Audio Productions: With Lee In Virginia Review
We love audiobooks around here and recently were able to review another fabulous creation by Heirloom Audio Productions called With Lee in Virginia. This amazing audio drama features another adventure of G.A. Henty that takes you to the time of the Civil War.
We received a 2 disc CD set to listen to, as well as, a study guide with over 40 pages of activities to use to go along with the book. The digital download guide offers ideas such as Listening Well, Thinking Further, and Defining Words. It all helps you and your child focus on aspects of the story and dig a little deeper into this tumultuous time period.
There's also an MP3 download, famous quote, and posters that you can download from the bonus section.
As with all the Heirloom productions this CD set offers a thrilling adventure following 15 year old Vincent as he traverses the scary times of the Civil War, slavery, and making a stand for God. He gets to meet the famous generals along the way like Thomas "Stonewall" Jackson and Robert E. Lee.
As we travel along with Vincent and his friends he learns the pains of war, the sense of duty, and a strong stand for what he believes in. While he does fight for the Confederacy, he also fights for justice for all people.
You'll learn in the story that one of his closest friends is a slave that his family owns. As they face these hard times ahead, Vincent learns valuable lessons and meets many other soldiers that are doing the same thing.
The list of stars who bring this story to life is an amazing one. You'll find your favorite actors such as Brian Blessed, Kirk Cameron, Sean Astin and more. For 2 1/2 hours you're with familiar voices telling a story of bravery, justice, and devotion to God.
These characters seem to come to life in your imagination as you listen to this very powerful Christian Radio Theater. You can feel the hurt and suffering that comes through but you also build character as you take these adventures with G. A. Henty. Go behind the scenes with General Lee and learn facts about this general you may never have known before.
We have done one other review of these amazing productions called In Freedom's Cause and it was a great one just as With Lee in Virginia. I highly recommend checking out these action packed stories filled with history, adventure, and learning to stand for God and what you believe in. My son loves audio books in general but he has truly fallen in love with these action packed radio theater versions that have all sorts of sound effects and truly bring it to life. If you love audio books or your kiddos do, this is definitely one to add to your collection
The book is rated for ages 6-adult and you can purchase just the CD by themselves or the bonuses that really help you dig deeper.
