|good, but... Feb 25, 2008|
|Quality stuff! |
My main concern is that almost every episode includes pretty "heavy" topics. I found myself discussing things like gangs and divorce with my 5- and 7-year-olds before I was quite ready to go there. Some innocence was lost before I, as a parent, would have preferred. Certainly we would have broached these subjects at some point, but having them thrust upon us without warning was disappointing and disconcerting. I was also disappointed with the amount of arguing and unkindness that is portrayed, even by the grandfatherly figure of Whit. I would much prefer to have peacefulness and kindness modeled.
Aside from those hesitations, I would still recommend these stories, but with the encouragement for the parent to listen first, then listen and discuss with their child (who would be preferably closer to upper elementary age).
|top notch family entertainment Feb 18, 2008|
|I can't stand bad Christain entertainment! Just because I believe firmly in my Christain faith doesn't mean I have to subject myself and my family to bad entertainment. There are too many talented Christains to put up with that! Besides it puts out the message to the secular world that Christains are lame, cheesy, have no culture and just plain uncool. I am also a pretty accomplished musician and cannot turn my back on years of training. The only bad Christain entertainment in our house has been purchased as a gift and I haven't gotten around to passing it on to the Goodwill. |
Now that you understand my standards, you'll appreciate just how good this radio series is. It is top notch and I plan to purchase as much as I can for my kids and their kids. I flip between wanting to be frugle and buy it used on this site or buy it new through Focus on the Family to support the programming. And yes, the commercials are right, your family will love to listen to them over and over again.
A major suggestion, don't buy the vides series. It is very disappointing. I expected the radio program with pictures. They must have hired the writers from PBS and Barney. And to add to the punishment, the music is cheesy! I think I'll send the videos to a Goodwill in Wisconsin! Besides, it takes out the wonderful gift of imagination.
|An Adult's Review Jul 28, 2007|
|I'm an adult and I think that "Adventures in Odyssey should be listened to by kids of all ages. It is a wonder program to listen to as a family or with friends. It shares the Bible in a way for everyone to understand.|
|a good series Nov 3, 2005|
|I am seven years old and I think that this should be listened to by children who are seven to nine. I like the CDs because every story teaches a lesson. Some are scary, some are funny and some are just in the middle.|
