Want to learn about the Pilgrims with your kids this Thanksgiving? I have a wonderful recommendation for you. We have been listening to Stories of the Pilgrims from Jim Hodges Audio Group and Yesterday’s Classics this month. We received it to review from the Bow of Bronze Launch Team and we are really having a lot of fun with it. My kids love to listen the the stories and have enjoyed the stories and lessons they have learned from it.
The stories on this audio album are very high quality and so engaging to listen to. It runs for more than 4 hours! It comes in a digital audio download. The story starts in Scrooby, England, follows the pilgrims to Holland, and then on to America. Not only is it fun to listen to, but kids learn so much about the history of the early Americans and their experiences. My kids loved learning about how they lived and the things they did back then. This is a great thing to use as a Unit Study for Thanksgiving, or along with your American History studies. It shares many wonderful stories of their trials and their faith.
The stories are so much fun that the kids always begged to listen to more! They never wanted me to turn it off… We always have a read-aloud time during school and some days this took the place of that time. It is also great to put on in the car while driving. My son especially liked learning about Holland and their time there. He didn’t know anything about that part of history.
This story usually sells for $25, but it is now on sale for just $15 (normally $18)! They also have a $5 study guide available to go along with it. The study guide has vocabulary words, comprehension questions, and other learning activity (maps, crafts, projects, etc) to go along with the stories. It is AWESOME & well worth the cost!
You can listen to the first chapter of Stories of the Pilgrims for free here.
