Review and Giveaway: Mystery of History on Audio!

I had heard the words Mystery of History floating around the home school world for a long time. But I never had the chance to preview any of the material for myself. A good friend of mine suggested I buy the audio to use with my six year old son, as he likes to listen to stories on tape. I was thrilled when Linda happily agreed to not only let me review set 1, but also set 2 on audio!

I am very particular about history, and how it is presented to my children. Linda has done a fantastic job of weaving in the Bible history with other history not as common to us. Some children might look at you and say" The Bible isn't history!" but it is indeed. In volume one Linda has taken the time period of creation through the death and Resurrection of Jesus, and made it come alive for anyone who listens to it! I found it very easy to listen to, and something I think all of us will enjoy sitting down and listening to together. I am trying to teach my children history in a chronological order, and supplementing our history program with these audio's will be wonderful!

In set 2, you pick up where you left off in set 1 with the Resurrection of Jesus. The first lesson teaches you about the Day of Pentecost. You then proceed into the history of the early church, which as we all know is full of many terrible trials and persecutions. After exploring the early church, you enter the middle ages of castles and knights!

I found the Cd's to be very soothing to listen to. There is background music playing that does not distract from what is being read. Linda reads the text out loud herself, and you can tell she has a passion for history by how she reads it!

If you are searching for a biblical history program, this would be a great one to choose! In addition to the audio there are books and study guides to buy also, if you wanted to read it out loud to your children yourself.
