What a great way to spend a few hours in the car!
Based on the book by G.A. Henty’s, Beric The Briton is a tale of Nero’s conquering of Britannia from the eyes of two of boys captured by the Romans and trained to fight for Nero. As the tale unfolds, Christianity takes it’s place in Europe and the boys are face to face with their pagan past.
I listened to the audio before the trip so that I could enjoy the quiet in the car during the drive. I loved the action and adventure throughout the audio drama.
I am always impressed by Heirloom Audio Productions, they have great sound effects, narrations and character voices. The story and sounds carry you into the story and let you feel as if you are there fighting side-by-side with the gladiators.
I also love that I can let my kids listen to the dramas without worry of bad language or inappropriate issues. Things that I would rather them not be exposed to. The Christian drama is a great way to slip in a bit of teaching with history, morals, character traits and more. The kids are learning and they don’t even realize it! Score on all accounts!
The story and audio dramas from Heirloom Audio Productions will capture the kids (and your) attention and keep them enthralled throughout the few hours of listening. Beric The Briton was no an exception to that rule.
Beric The Briton was a great story and audio drama that my kids loved as well.
We started our trip with Beric The Briton and they were completely captivated by the story as we drove. I looked back multiple times and you could see them in a trance listening to the story. It was as if they were the boys captured and fighting for Nero. They had become a part of the story.
When it was over, I asked them what they thought of the story and they loved it, although Sunshine said, “It was a little scary, but not too scary. I still enjoyed it.” Mister Man thought it was great and said he would definitely listen to it again.
Another great thing about Heirloom Audio Productions is the wonderful digital products that go along with the audio drama. These include study guides, behind the scenes video footage and more. These will make the story even more meaningful for your kids as they listen.
I am a big fan of Heirloom Audio Productions and will continue to add to our library of audio dramas from their production team! They are great additions to your home and family. With great Christian morals, wonderful audio and extras galore, they are a great addition to any family’s collection!
