Jim Hodges Audio Books Makes History Come Alive with Henty books and more…..

When we first began listening to our new audio book, True to the Old Flag, we were captivated as we heard Mr. Hodges change his voice in so many ways.  Whatever character he was reading about, he would become.  Voice inflections, accents and all!  We knew that we would NOT get bored!   He has a way of making the story so interesting & the listener feels as if he or she is right there with the characters of the book.  My son is always asking if we can listen to one more chapter, when it’s time for our listening session to end.

One of my hesitations to picking up a Henty book was because of the “old English”.  Well, Jim Hodges Audio books has helped me out with that one, too!  They have vocabulary guides to go with many of the Henty books that are available on their site. When we don’t know what a word means, we look it up in the vocab guide.  Talk about a time saver!  (Read more of this in depth review at Sidetracked Sarah)

What others are saying . . .

“What do you get when you cross a spellbinding story with an eloquent storyteller? You get Jim Hodges reading aloud a G. A. Henty book! We had to drive 6 hours this weekend and our family was enthralled! Mr. Hodges reads with a fluent style that charmed us all, from Drew (7 years) to Daddy (40 years).”
L. F. – Renton WA, TEACH Magazine

“A highly professional recording. Made history come alive for me and my sons. What a voice!”
D. J. – Fort Worth TX

“Whether you are out on a walk, riding in the car, or just sitting by the fire, you will be able to bring these G. A. Henty classics with you wherever you go. Jim Hodges has brought to life these Henty novels in unabridged, dramatic readings. The tapes are high-quality and well recorded with strong, clear reading – perfect for recapturing that “lost” time in the car.”

  1. While we haven’t listened to audio books in our homeschool, yet, we do listen to audio books/stories from time to time. They are perfect to play while on a trip or just for a quiet time at home.

  3. Cindy Freeman says:

    No, I haven’t used them, but this sounds awesome!

  4. Tammy Jones says:

    We haven’t tried audio books yet, but would love to try! They love it when I read to them, so it stands to reason that they’d like this!

  5. I haven’t used audiobooks in my homeschool, though I used audiobooks constantly when I was working. I like the idea of someone else reading because, quite honestly, I am LOUSY at doing the character voices! LOL

  6. Danielle Hull says:

    My kids love audio books! Their favorites are Jonathan Park, Adventures in Odyssey and some old Jack Benny. The older kids are now getting into the Henty ones!

    We have not tried audio books but look forward to exploring these now.

  12. My son loves using audiobooks during his independent reading time. I can’t always get to some books during regular “class time”, so this allows him to explore his interests on his own. Thank you for the opportunity to win.

  13. I use audio books for homeschool all the time! Its a huge help to me as a Mom and the kids have gotten to where its one of their favorite things to do, even in their free time.

  14. We love to listen to audio books in the car. We have learned so much about history and science!

  15. My husband grew up with G. A. Henty audio dramas. We have two boys now and I would love for them to enjoy some of the same things daddy did when he was growing up.

  16. We use audiobooks all the time in our homeschool to enrich my children’s literature exposure and history knowledge.

  17. Audiobooks are a wonderful way to bring history to life! My mom used them in homeschooling me and I still remember facts so vividly because of listening to those stories over and over again! Excited to use them with my kids!

  18. Dorothy Teel says:

    My daughter in law home schools two of my granddaughters and they love listening to audio books when they are in the car and they are doing great in school, and love to learn and tell me about what they are learning.

  19. We’ve never used audiobooks before!

  20. Audio books are a good way for all of us to learn from. We listen to them while cooking or just hanging out on the patio.
