As part of the TOS Review Crew I was given the opportunity to review an audio drama series from Brinkman Adventures: Season 3. See below for my thoughts and impressions of this product.
Audio dramas are a fun way to enrich any homeschool curriculum! They can also make bedtime more fun for the kids, and easier on mom and dad. Do you use them? I’d love for you to tell me in the comments how you use audio dramas and what your favorite genres are.
I was given the opportunity to review the third season of audio dramas from the popular Brinkman Adventures. Why are these audio dramas so popular?
First, because they’re quality. Well scripted, developed characters, and wonderfully animated with talented voices.
Second, because they’re wholesome. Brinkman Adventures audios are dramatized stories of the experiences of modern Christian missionaries.
- God’s Mule
- Mountain Mover
- The Silent Ambassador
- Translating Trouble
- Acorns & Oaks
- A Saint’s Story Part. 1
- A Saint’s Story Part. 2
- Busy Bees and a Bullhorn
- Missionary Tourist Part. 1
- Missionary Tourist Part 2
As I sat and listened to the story unfold I was impressed by the quality of the voices – great voice animation and fun but clear accents (where accents were needed). That was the first thing to catch my attention because, as you know if you’ve tried audio dramas before, sometimes the voices will be dry, withheld, and mundane.
These voices were able to keep my attention, and I was happy for that.
I was also impressed by the diversity of the stories. Brinkman Adventures tells the stories of many missionaries I’ve never heard of. Don’t get me wrong, I don’t tire of hearing about Gladys Aylward, but I love learning new things. And it was refreshing to be mentally whisked away to unfamiliar times and countries, with new and exciting challenges.
These are not biographies, so you won’t learn about a specific person – that is the one drawback for me. However the stories are based on true missionary accounts, the challenges they face, and how God always shows Himself mighty.
If you’re concerned your child may not sit still long enough to listen to an audio story, feel free to take advantage of the fun extras Brinkman Adventures has to offer. They have downloadable coloring pages for their first six episodes from season 1.
They also have informative behind the scenes information for all seasons. Like this one, providing background information about Tomas, the real-life Bible smuggler in God’s Mule from season 3.
And, you can take your Brinkman Adventures wherever you go by choosing physical cd’s, or MP3 downloads. They make it easy!
