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!

What To Do About Those Fuzzy Uninvited Guests In The Home

When we talk about pests in the home, the most common that we tend to deal with are the creepy-crawlies that find their way in. Ants, termites, and spiders, for instance. Occasionally though, you have a real chance of getting a much bigger, fuzzier unwanted guest in the home. What do you do about the fact your home is at risk of becoming a wildlife sanctuary for some truly unhealthy and even dangerous beasts? Picture by Alexas_Fotos Know the signs It doesn’t matter if you’re in a suburban home, a country cottage, or a fourth-floor apartment. Some animals can find their way just about anywhere. It’s worth knowing the signs of pest infestation so you can confirm it and act on it immediately. Spotting droppings, keeping an ear out for scratching, and looking for signs of nesting like shredded paper, scrunched leaves, and grass clippings around the home without explanation can help you start fighting back.

10 Things You Need To Do Before Moving Abroad

From There is nothing more fulfilling than travelling the world and visiting new and exciting places. If you’re a fan of travel , then you might have thought about moving abroad at some point. Unfortunately, there is a lot to do before you can get on the plane, with finding accommodations and a job being the most important.

Research The Country You need to do lots of research before you move abroad, especially if you haven’t visited the count
