Do you love books, but never seem to have enough time to read? Perhaps you’re looking for meaningful activities to keep your children occupied this summer. Or maybe you’re planning an extended road trip soon, with a lot of hours behind the wheel!
If any or all of those descriptions reflect you or someone else in your family, then I have a wonderful resource I’d like to recommend to you today! First, however, I need to introduce you to someone…
Meet Jim Hodges. For over 20 years, he has narrated and produced dozens of unabridged recordings of classic historical books! His collection includes timeless favorites like Treasure Island and Robinson Crusoe, titles from G. A. Henty’s famous historical novels, and shorter stories from series that younger listeners would especially enjoy, like the Trailblazer Series.
I’ve grown up listening to Mr. Hodges’ productions for years, and I believe that his audiobooks are truly top-notch. He has an amazing gift of storytelling that will draw you in at once and make you feel as if you are right there – experiencing the events and standing beside the characters of the book. His narrations will quickly become favorites – for yourself and your whole family!
If you’re like me, you probably enjoy getting discounts and deals – which is why I also want you to know about Mr. Hodges’ Download-a-Month Club! This program will help you fill your audio library with exciting, wholesome, and historically accurate stories – even if you are on a budget. Each calendar month, you may choose any single audio book from his extensive collection; and you get to download it and keep it forever – it’s yours to listen to, as many times as you want. Then, next month, you can select another title. Your family will love having a constant stream of exciting audio stories, month after month! Moreover, you can even tailor your monthly downloads to coincide with your homeschool history lessons, by downloading and referencing this FREE chronological list of all the titles that Mr. Hodges had recorded.
So if you’re one of those people I described at the beginning of this post, I hope that you will find this recommendation helpful! Listening to quality audio narrations like these means that you can still enjoy a good story, despite the fact that you don’t have the time to sit down under a shade tree with a book and a cup of lemonade or iced tea. You can even enjoy a story during your daily chore time! In addition, these audiobooks will give your children something wholesome and worthwhile (not to mention educational!) to be engaged in over the summer. And if you have a road trip on your calendar soon – well, what better way to pass the hours than with something profitable to listen to?
I hope that you’ll take a moment to check out Mr. Hodges’ productions! I’m certain that you’ll find something that will be of interest to you and your children.
May God bless you and your family this summer!
All for the King’s glory,
