What is Adventures in Odyssey?

It’s all-new Adventures in Odyssey episodes in volume 52, Cause & Effect. Join Eugene and Matthew as they investigate why the clock tower at City Hall seems to be stuck at 11:45. Could it have something to do with the anniversary of a lost love from twenty years ago? Barrett couldn’t be more excited about getting the lead role in the school play. But when his first practice is interrupted by a mysterious booming voice, Emily Jones must investigate the “phantom of the school play.” Also, perfect for the fall season, are stories on Thanksgiving (A Thankstaking Story) and Christmas (White Elephant Gift).

Adventures in Odyssey is fun and exciting audio entertainment that teaches quality character traits and ignites the imagination of all who listen. Imagine, Discover, and Grow with Adventures in Odyssey.


My Thoughts

Adventures in Odyssey is part of my daily routine when we go to swimming lessons.   We have about 30 minutes of drive to go and another 30 minutes to come back home.  Most of the time, my kids ask to listen to an Adventures in Odyssey and they have grown to love the characters and to enjoy the adventures.  

When I got the opportunity to review the latest volume of the Adventures in Odyssey, I jumped on it.   I knew that my kids would love this as much as I would.   Honestly, it gives me peace of mind when I am driving – especially when I am in the traffic while coming back from the swimming lessons.

With Adventures in Odyssey you can be certain that there will be a lesson to learn from with each episode.   In this specific volume the kids will learn about sin, fear, fasting, friendship, trust, being thankful, responsibility, honesty, why only God has true power, how your sin can find you out as well as the true meaning of Christmas.

As you can see, this particular volume arrives at a proper time during the year with Thanksgiving and Christmas fast approaching (actually for us in Canada, Thanksgiving is this coming week-end…  so it is just around the corner).    Adults can also learn much from these radio shows and you can use them as a teaching moments for your kids as well.   Every time we listen to one particular episode, we have great discussion about what happened and the lesson taught.

This is definitively not our last Adventures in Odyssey.   I suspect that more of them will find their way to our household/vehicle.   In the meantime, I personally want to hear the episode about fasting.   I have friends who fast food on a regular basic.   Personally I have trouble to do so a whole day.    I am quite curious to hear what our beloved characters from Adventures in Odyssey will have to say about it. 

Four CDs are contained in this package.   Also included is a bonus material  which is a video glimpse into sound effect recording in the Foley Studio.  As homeschoolers, the kids always love to discover how things are made and having a video on sound effect is priceless – especially when it is about a show that they LOVE!

This review was possible because I received a free Adventures in Odyssey Volume 52: Cause & Effect from Tyndale.

Adventures in Odyssey Volume 52: Cause & Effect is available everywhere for about 25$ even at  amazon.ca.
