We are big book readers. Always have been. I introduced my kids to reading at a very early age. Some of my favorite time with my kids were listening to audio books. We’ve used them on trips and quite time at home. One To Grow On (http://www.kids-audio-stories.com/) is a series of audio CDs teaching and inspiring kids.
When it comes to listening to an audio book, the main factor for my enjoyment is the sound of the reader. If they have little inflection or don’t sound like the different characters, I have hard time enjoying the story. Trenna does a wonderful job of making the stories come to life. I also like the background music and sound effects.
Each story takes us on an adventure and while on that adventure children, and parents, learn life skills such as courage, thinking positively, taking risks, and honesty. And those are only in the Making a Difference in the World series.
An aspect I enjoyed in this story is that Trenna takes our children sometimes to another world. I think for kids to learn how the characters in her stories deal with obstacles or right decisions will help them apply it to their own lives. The audio series allows our kids to use their imaginations and see how others handle life situations.
