Our family had the opportunity to review the newest release from Heirloom Audio Productions. It is called, The Dragon and the Raven, another G. A. Henty title. We have listened to several of the audio dramas from Heirloom Audio Productions and have never been disappointed.
You might recognize some of the names of the different voices telling this story. John Rhys-Davies, Helen George, Brian Blessed, Katherine Kellgren and more.
This Christian audio drama is perfect for long trips, nap time or even right before bed. We like to use these on long trips, so the entire family can listen together. These are much more interesting than an audio book. You actually feel like you are there. My daughters love listening to these as they go to sleep at night, although sometimes they stay awake to listen to one more chapter!
The Dragon and the Raven is set in the time period of King Alfred the Great, with Norsemen and Vikings, and all the adventure that entails. You will learn of King Alfred's struggle to If your son enjoys listening to battles and exciting tales, this should definitely be on your list of items to purchase. 2 1/2 hours of exciting adventure with Christian morals and teachings.
DID YOU KNOW? Alfred is the only English monarch to be given the epithet of "the Great," though he was never canonised as a saint as other kings, such as St. Edmund the Martyr and St. Edward the Confessor. Taken from: The Dragon and the Raven Facebook page
Another great feature is, this set can be used for homeschooling too, as there is a downloadable study guide included with your purchase. This guide will give you the opportunity to discuss the story with your children and guide them into a better understanding of the storyline. The guide will also challenge older students into a deeper study of this time period in history. The story itself is broken down into tracks, so it is very easy to assign one a day, or two a week, whatever works for you and your children. The study guide is also broken down, so you can assign the portion that corresponds with what was listened to. The study guide is a PDF, which can be printed off, or viewed on your computer or tablet. Printing would take quite a bit of ink, so if you have the ability to use a tablet I would personally choose to do that.
