Our family has enjoyed listening to audio books and dramas since my teens were toddlers.
Even now, with my youngest in kindergarten, we still replay old favorites regularly. They’re still in demand for car trips and bedtime especially. The whole family are good sports about listening to something new too, so I’m always open to trying out something different with them. Anything high quality, biblically sound, and not too cheesy is fair game for us! 🙂
We’ve had a couple of new things playing for the last several weeks, one of which is Wizzy Gizmo‘s Audio Drama One: Who Created Everything? (watch for more about the other one we’ve been listening to in the next week or so). Wizzy Gizmo produces books, audio dramas, and flashcards that explain the Bible in a fun and engaging way. Their resources are meant to provide tools to help parents put Deuteronomy 6: 5-6 into practice:
“You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your might. These words, which I am commanding you today, shall be on your heart. You shall teach them diligently to your sons and shall talk of them when you sit in your house and when you walk by the way and when you lie down and when you rise up.”
Who Created Everything? is a 36 minute Bible audio drama (adapted from the book) based on Genesis chapter one, with an additional 24 minutes of bonus soundtrack content, aimed at ages 4-12. In it, a group of kids experience the Creation story as written in Genesis chapter one through Gizmovision, the unique invention of Professor Wizzy Gizmo. Gizmovision brings any book to life where it can be experienced with all five senses, as if you are really in the story. [Read more…]
