Heirloom Audio Productions Presents The Dragon and the Raven


The Dragon and the Raven {Heirloom Audio Productions Review}

Hey neighbors!

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.

The Dragon and the Raven {Heirloom Audio Productions Review}

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.

Also included in the downloads:
  • MP3 Download
  • E-Book
  • MP3 Soundtrack
  • Printable Cast Poster
  • Study Guide and Discussion
  • Inspirational Verse Poster
  • Live The Adventure Letter
  • Behind the Scenes Video
 The only problem I have with the Heirloom Audio Production's, The Dragon and the Raven, is I hard a hard time slowing down how much they listened to at a time.  They would have easily sat down one evening and listened to it in it's entirety.  This may be a good option, to allow them to listen to the entire production and then go back over it in chapters the second time.  This is definitely a set that will stay in our family library!

Polar FA20 Activity Watch Review and Giveaway

Hi Neighbors, Well, I am out of the hospital, but I am not allowed to be very active yet, so I asked my daughter to test out this new item. It is an Activity Watch. What a great item for Get Out Get Active! The Polar FA20 counts your daily physical activity. First you need to set the basic information. The date, units (metric or imperial), your weight, height, birth date, and male or female. Place the FA20 on your wrist to measure your physical activity 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. This watch monitors your activity and gives you feedback about how you are doing. Everyone should be physically active at least 30 minutes each day, and the FA20 helps you achieve this. Throughout your day you can check and see if you are having a Lazy Day (active less than 30 minutes), Easy Day (active 30 to 60 minutes), Active Day (active 60 to 75 minutes) or an Intensive Day (active more than 75 minutes). You can also record your training sessions to learn more about how your body respon

This monitor comes witha high and low alert so you can make sure you stay right where you are supposed to. Not overdoing it, yet not taking it too easy!
