Desperate Homeschoolers’ Review
When I finished reading this book the first time, I went straight to Audible.com to see if it was available as an audiobook. The girls listen to stories each afternoon during our “naptime,” and I knew I wanted this story in our rotation as soon as possible. It was not yet available, and I have checked regularly ever since March to see if it was there yet. I am so excited to finally have this in our playlist! Kevin DeYoung does a good job reading his story, and the background music and sound effects add much to the experience.
The DVD makes use of the same audio as the CD of Mr. DeYoung’s narration with background music but has the lovely addition of animated illustrations adapted from Don Clark’s illustrations in the book. If you know the book well, as we do, it feels like it has come alive before your very eyes! Truly stunning!
One of my children was expecting a cartoon when she heard me say DVD so she was a little disappointed by the animated illustrations the first time, but that was a simple case of misplaced expectations. You might want to do a better job than I did setting up your kids’ expectations when you watch it.
I love that this beautifully written story of redemption is now available in so many different formats so that it can reach learners of all styles in their preferred way. Now they just need to start translating it into loads of other languages! 🙂
I received a copy of these products from Propeller Consulting, LLC in exchange for my honest review. They are also providing the prize for the giveaway.
