Teach Me: Audio Dramas by Lamplighter Theater

Hello my faithful readers! The VI family is adjusting to a new home school schedule as we school year-round. It has taken some time as we're incorporating many hands-on, life living educational opportunities which requires us to be on the road.

As the truth would have it, I love being on the road. My heart aches to be one the road with my husband and three precious children. Travel and sight seeing is one of my most favorite things to do. It is funny how each family sees "on the road". For us, it is pure bliss. I have three children who do not mind long car rides and entertain fairly easily. 

For longer trips, we enjoy audio books as a family. On our recent ten hour drive, good friends of ours lent us some of their Lamplighter Theater audio books. If you haven't listened to an audio drama of a book, you are in for a spectacular treat. Ten hours flies by as you sit in your seat and get lost in delightful stories of character, heroism, and faithfulness.

Imagine getting lost in this story,  "There were guns blazing, shells flying, and swords flashing and hacking away!" Teddy recounts the bravery of his father's heroic deed. But rivalry between a soldier's son and a sailor's daughter drives Teddy to his breaking point til he learns of a new battle, a new enemy, and a new Captain, whose orders are to fight all battles with the banner of love! Lamplighter Theatre is delighted to bring you one of our most treasured stories of all time and an instant classic in the Lamplighter Collection."

This is a favorite among Lamplighter Theater collections, but we listened to many more that were added to our top ten favorites of all time including; Sir Knight of the Splendid Way, The Hedge of Thorns, The Captive, The Unexpected Return and Charlie's Choice, just to name a few.

Another wonderful feature of the Lamplighter Theater is that they've printed heirloom quality reprints of these classic books for you, so you can begin building a collection for your children and grandchildren to come. 


Do you already love and enjoy audio dramas or audio books? Please share your suggestions with us in the comments! We'd love to find more stories to listen to this summer.

We love Lamplighter and have enjoyed numerous hours listening in the car. A good way to start your collection of books and audios is to join their book club. We chose the most expensive books and got those each month until we had almost 100 books. The book club runs $68/month and you get 4 books for that price and some of the audios are included in the club. My 11 year old son has requested the books be passed on to him so he can continue the tradition of reading together each night as a family.
