Your Story Hour: Great Stories Volume 7 Review by Lisa Barthuly & Family

Your Story Hour
P.O. Box 15
Berrien Springs, MI 49103

Your Story Hour has wonderful, fully-dramatized, fun and exciting stories that bring history to life! My children absolutely love audio books and stories on disc and Your Story Hour has been a huge hit in our family!

In Volume 7 we hear great stories of Paul Revere (early events in the Revolution, the Boston Tea Party, and Paul Revere's historic ride), Eli Whitney (the boy craftsman, the master mechanic, and inventor of the Cotton Gin), Mary Jemison (her capture by the Seneca Tribe, and growing up with the Indians), Sybil Ludington (the young woman patriot and her dangerous ride), Lucretia Mott (the young Quaker girl who grows up to defend human rights), and The California Gold Rush and The Pony Express!

These CDs are packed with enough great stories, that keep the listeners on the edge of their seats (and learning history at the same time!), that the whole family can enjoy and listen to together. The recordings are of excellent quality and the children just love to listen to them!

I would highly recommend Your Story Hour. These make a great addition to the homeschool family library.
