About Heirloom Audio Productions: Captain Bayley’s Heir Audiobook
Captain Bayley’s Heir audiobook is a 2-CD adventure the whole family can have fun listening to. The primary story is about the 18-year-old boy named Frank. Frank has been falsely accused and rather than defend his honor he leaves. Through God’s grace, his name is restored.
This 2-CD set is only $29.97.
Jimmy is a huge fan of the Heirloom Audio Productions audiobooks. I have been informed by him to never miss the chance to review them if I can help it. He snatches them up the minute they come in.
In the past, I’ve always just left it to him to listen to them and review them. This time around since we aren’t using Connections Academy we could count it as school work more, so I decided to use it as part of a lesson plan for the boys. Then we used the chapter quizzes at the end of each chapter. Jimmy did rather well answering those questions.
This audiobook also comes with a study guide as well. The study guide is broken down into three sections for each chapter. There are the listening well questions, thinking further, and also defining words. The guide also has background information about the author. All of that is expected in a study guide. Throughout the guide are “Expand Your Learning” sections that give you bits of information from history worth remembering. I am particularly fond of the thinking further questions because they are not your typical style questions. They have my children do research and think critically about what is being asked.
I can honestly say that now I see why Jimmy gets so excited to get these audiobooks in the mail. They aren’t dull and boring. It’s almost like you’re bringing a live play into the room with you. It’s nice to be able to sit back and close your eyes and have the narrators paint the picture for you so vividly.
In this particular story, I loved how the storyline showed God’s grace. It also showed how the truth does always come out in the end. It was a nice reminder that God does use all things for the good in the end. He has a plan for everyone’s lives and regardless as to the routes, we choose to take. This story may have been fictional, but in my own life, I’ve seen how God will ensure that his plans end up happening in the end.
