Kids Audiobooks for Homeschooling
We are big fans of audiobooks. I love them because they are screen free, they are a fun way to get in extra read aloud time, and there are so many wonderful adventures the boys can go on while I get housework done or take time to read something I want to.
Some of the best audiobooks for kids are from Focus on the Family’s Adventures in Odyssey series!
Disclosure: We were given a copy of Adventures in Odyssey #63 to review. I was compensated for my time. All opinions are my own and as always, we only recommend products we love and think you will, too!
We are very particular about the audio books the boys are allowed to listen to. What our children put into their minds and hearts is important! And we trust Adventures in Odyssey to always keep that in mind and provide a fantastic lesson in a fun story.
Utilizing audio books and dramas was one method suggested to us to help Mr. T with fluency challenges caused by dyslexia. As you can see from our partial collection pictured below, Mr. T enjoys listening to them. There are several Adventures in Odyssey collections and they are well loved. His vocabulary is excellent and we credit his exposure to so much literature and adventure through audiobooks.
Christian Stories for Family Time
In Up in the Air, there are 6 episodes for your family to enjoy together. I love how the stories all address friendship in some way. We have been really focusing on learning how to be a good friend and these stories came at the perfect time!
Teaching children about being a caring friend, about compassion, about giving more than you take, and about how relationships are built on trust and carried with forgiveness and grace are tough lessons to put on the age level of a 7 and 5 year old. But a story can give those noble ideas wings and help plant the seeds for them to grow and flourish.
Allowing the boys to have quiet time to listen to these Adventures in Odyssey stories has provided us with a lot of fun talks and opportunities to pull examples of kindness and understanding to use in the weekly challenges of growing up with your brother. Sometimes these talks can be downright hard, but having a good example makes them much easier!
B-TV’s theme of the folly that comes from seeking revenge is one I know we will be revisiting a lot. Raising brothers can be challenging and I am grateful for stories like these that allow me to use something the boys love to help drive home the point that they don’t have to “get each other back” for whatever infraction has most recently occurred.
We have been completely delighted with #63 Up in the Air and are looking forward to having many more of our own adventures with the crew at Whit’s End. I hope you join us! Enter below to win.
