Beloved Books {Schoolhouse Review Crew}

My dad used to tell of some of the old-time radio shows he grew up listening to, like The Lone Ranger. Back during the early years of my first marriage, my (ex)husband and I used to listen to Christian radio all the time. One of the programs we enjoyed listening to was The Sugar Creek Gang!

Paul Hutchens began writing this series of wholesome Christian adventure books for boys and girls in 1939.  Several years ago Paul Ramseyer was inspired to dramatize the book series for radio. These adventures are read straight from the books, excellently dramatized.

Beloved Books was created with the desire to share these and other Christian character building resources, such as scripture songs, missionary stories, Little Britches series, and G.A. Henty audio books. I've known Heather (via online), owner of Beloved Books, for several years now, from back when the kids and I used to live in Montana, so I was really excited for the opportunity to review these CDs.

The boys have been enjoying listening to The Sugar Creek Gang while working on schoolwork, while we prepare and eat our meals, or while washing dishes. I think these will be something they will be willing to listen to over and over again.

The Sugar Creek Gang is a group of boys, ranging in age from about 10 or 11 to about 15, some of whom are Christians, some of whom are not. The boys who are Christians share their faith, and pray for the others to give their lives to the Lord as well. They end up in some old-fashioned adventures, with relevant faith-building incidents.

The Botanist Boy says he likes The Sugar Creek Gang, because he likes the adventures they have, which remind him of the kind he and his best bud would like to have themselves.

Little Bit just thinks they are fun to listen to.

We received volume 1, which contains the following stories:
  • The Swamp Robber
  • The Killer Bear
  • The Winter Rescue
  • The Lost Campers
  • Chicago Adventure
  • The Secret Hideout
Do be sure to check them out! Both boys and girls will enjoy listening to these stories; hey, I enjoy them myself! By the way, these will make terrific Christmas gifts!!

Cost: Sugar Creek Gang, each volume of CDs, is $54.95. If you order all six volumes at once, you will save $50.00 off the total.
