You can see other reviews we have done and LOVED as well
we also own others, that were not review products, which we also LOVE!
As with all Heirloom Audio Productions audio dramas, this one is based on a G.A. Henty book and is Christian based. Each story teaches values and Christian morals and typical tells of a characters journey to Christ.
The Cat of Bubastes takes places in Ancient Egypt. The journey of a prince who loses everything, a journey from polytheism to monotheism, a sacred cat, conspiracy murders, and more….
My kids are always captivated from the moment it starts, until it ends! We use these in the car, and they are always wanted to hear more! The particular story was listened to on the way to the airport and as we sat parked waiting for the plane to arrive!
It was a perfect story, since we are studying ancient history this year. All the G. A. Henty books that these audio dramas are based off of are historical fiction, therefore fact based! What a great way to learn history! It’s entertaining and fun; they don’t even know they are learning!
As with all Heirloom Audio Productions stories, The Cat of Bubastes, came with a Study Guide, a soundtrack, an mp3 of the audio drama, an ebook, a behind-the-scenes video, a couple of posters, and more! (all as computer files).
The particular drama is designed for kids ages 6-16, but equally enjoyed by all ages!
Many of the actors are well known names, such as those from Star Wars, Dr. Who, Lord of the Rings and The Chronicles of Narnia!
The sound effects are amazing, as if you are right there! I kid you not, for this story I often caught myself looking around, for it seemed the cicadas and other animals noises, were right there with me!
I am not much of an audio learner, and I honestly have not always been able to keep up with all of the stories as we listen (after all I am concentrating on driving), but I do know the kids LOVE them, and since most of this story was listened too while parked, I was able to more thoroughly enjoy this one! You really gain an appreciation of each character and find yourself emotionally engaged in the story!
I quite often recommend these stories when friends ask for audio book recommendations. These far surpass any audio book we have ever listened too! They are great for road trips, or just listening too around the house (My kids also like to listen while they play with Legos or other things).
There are several titles available, all are historical fiction and based off of G.A. Henty’s novels. I always look forward to seeing which one is released next!
These CDs also make great gifts, which is why they have package deals available for purchase, the 4 pack set includes all the great bonuses I mentioned earlier for one great price! Other options are a single pack or an instant download. Prices start at $19.97.
