We’ve always had Legos or Magnetix or some other hands-on activity for our boys to work with while I read History to them. They listen and learn so much better this way, and I always recommend this to parents of young kids! But guess what we’re adding to this year’s History curriculum for Malachi?
This year Malachi gets to hang out in his Lego room (his favorite place in the world) while listening to History lessons from Heirloom Audio Productions. That’s right. School in the Lego room.
This is full on Christian History, in an amazingly fun audio format. Imagine “Adventures in Odyssey” as a history lesson that kids love. These CDs make history come alive! Kids and families can listen and learn while working in the kitchen, folding laundry, riding in the car, playing – anything!
We haven’t officially started our school year yet, but I wanted to see how well these CDs would work for Malachi to learn while he builds his Lego city. He got the CD player set up and put in a disc. Every few minutes I’d pop in and say, “How’s the CD?” His responses?
- “Good! These are really good!”
- “The whole time I’m picturing everything that’s happening in my head.”
- “Wait. I need to find out what happens…” (Silly me for interrupting at a peak point of the story!)
- “Ooh, some of this is sad. Like what was happening to some of the people…”
And then he went on to tell me all about the story and the people, but then he stopped himself and said, “You know what? I think you should listen to these and I don’t want to give it away. You’d really like this.”
Love, love, love. This is school in its best form!
After experiencing just a few hours of Heirloom Audio Productions audio adventures, I can’t tell you how grateful I am to make these CDs a part of Malachi’s curriculum this year. I’ve always really enjoyed reading our history books to the kids through the years, and for sure I’ll still be doing that this year with Malachi. But these CDs share history in a way I never could. They make history come alive, with all the voices and sound effects.
