This review has had me excited for a while, not only am I excited about it, but MY KIDS are excited! I was asked to review With Lee in Virginia by Heirloom Audio Productions. With Lee in Virginia is an audio drama that your family will not forget.
If you have children that love to use their imagination and listen to stories this audio drama and study guide is perfect for them!
What I Received:
The 2 CD set With Lee in Virginia audio drama. This is a Civil War Story of courage, honor, and duty, plus the study guide. The CD set is 2 1/2 hours of audio drama about a young soldiers experience in the Civil War. With a cast of stars that include Kirk Cameron, Sean Astin, and more you will be captivated by the story. This is recommended for ages 6 and up, but my younger child listened as well and loved it.
The study guide is 48 page wonderful hands-on activity book that your students can complete while listening to the story, or as a review together after you have listened together. The study guide features biographies of the voices heard in the story such as Robert E. Lee, G.A. Henty, General Thomas “Stonewall” Jackson, and more. Maps are included so you can follow along with the characters journey during the story, this is a great visual feature.
Each part of the story is broken down into three sections in the study guide: Listening Well, Thinking Further, and Defining Words. You can use this as a Unit Study for your History.
Our Take On It:
I cannot tell you enough how much my family LOVED With Lee in Virginia. We listened to the CD’s in the car while we traveled, and every ear in our car was listening intensely. The questions my children had were so much fun to listen to and answer. It spurred conversations about the Confederate flag, living conditions, people’s character, and more.
There were events that happened in the story where my children let out gasps, and “oh no”, at one point my son was emotional because he connected so much with the character.
It caused my children to use their imagination like they had never done before! Creating the characters in their minds and following the story as it was told.
We will be buying all the audio drama’s that Heirloom Audio Productions creates.
The quailty of the CD’s and study guide are exceptional. You will not be disappointed.
