Ten Girls from History Review

Posted by Orilla on 9th February and posted in Reviews

This audiobook is one of three book that Jim Hodges has done by Amy Puetz. Amy is a homeschool graduate and author and I love reading her works but with her writing and hearing Jim Hodges read them, the book takes on a whole new outlook. This audiobook has 9 hours worth on it.

As the title says it is about 10 different girls in history that through hardships made a difference. You will learn about Dorothy Quincy and her part in the American Revolution, Clara Barton and her work on the battlefield, and the well known writer Louisa May Alcott author of Little Women. This may sound like it is just for girls but our mentally handicapped son loved the adventure that these girls went through and was held captive through the whole book.

This audiobook is available at http://jimhodgesaudiobooks.com/amypuetz_ten_girls_from_history.html in either mp3 CD format or by digital download. I’m sure you will love it as much as we did! Get yours today. It will help history come alive for you and your family! He even has a sample of the audiobook on the site.

Stories of the Pilgrims Audiobook Review

Posted by Orilla on 9th February and posted in Reviews

This audiobook is in mp3 format only and is part of the Yesterday’s Classics Series. We downloaded it to one of our mp3’s and hooked the player to our car radio and listened to it on a trip. It is just over 4 hours of listening. You will start with the story at the Scrooby Inn and follow the Pilgrims lives from the beginning through the start of their new lives in America. Boys and girls will enjoy this and all the adventures that the Brewster children had. Yes, there were hard times that you will find holding your breath and then rejoicing with them during the good times.

Jim Hodges is awesome to listen to and instead of it sounding like someone just reading a book, he makes the book come alive. Our son that is severely mentally handicapped loved listening. When we would stop for a break and didn’t immediately turn the story back on he would be shouting out to get it on.
