I was a member of an online community for homeschoolers at that time, and there had been a discussion going on about audio books. At that point, my knowledge of audio books consisted of those little cassettes that came along with picture books that beeped when it was time to turn the page.
The Sugar Creek Gang is a series of wonderful Christian adventure stories, written by Paul Hutchens, beginning in 1939. A few years ago, another gentleman, Paul Ramseyer, was inspired to dramatize the book series for a radio show. The radio shows were eventually made available for purchase as The Sugar Creek Gang audio CDs. Actually, they began as cassettes (and you can still get them for a limited time on cassestte for half price, if you are interested). There are 36 books in 6 volumes on 72 CDs (over 100 hours), for your family to enjoy.
“These Sugar Creek Gang “Audio Adventures” are dramatically read straight from the original books. Christian families LOVE this series because the gospel message is presented in such a simple, easy-to-understand style. The whole series is, in fact, a discipleship journey… even parents who listen along witness the Holy Spirit working changes in their own hearts!Families also enjoy the delightfully interspersed segments of nature study, poetry, hymns, and even science lessons… all skillfully woven into the fabric of the stories.”
