Product Description:

This set includes the first five audios from the Heritage of Our Country Album. With two 30-minute stories per disc, you'll hear the stories of Columbus planning his voyage, the early Pilgrims and the first Thanksgiving, the story of the US flag, Benjamin Franklin, Abraham Lincoln giving the Gettysburg Address and an additional Lincoln-themed story. An entertaining way to learn about early American history. ~ Rachel

Category Description for Your Story Hour Audios:

Don't waste that valuable educational time in the car. Use it for character development, learning history, or just for good entertainment. Originally designed for a radio audience, these stories are professionally written, enacted, recorded and produced, complete with music and sound effects. Stories are from the Bible, history, literature and everyday life. Albums generally contain 12 half-hour cassettes. Join Uncle Dan, Aunt Sue and Aunt Carole for inspiring excitement and entertainment.

If you ask my adult children about their childhood they will tell you how much they enjoyed Your Story Hour. These dramatized audio CDs presented my children with heroes to admire.

Books were the mainstay of morning lessons. But with audio we learned in our leisure, too. On a rainy afternoon or during summer vacation we heard stories (enacted by a professional cast) of men and women of the Bible, of history or science, and of less famous people who took steps of faith, ingenuity, generosity and courage.

I like the respectful flavor of these recordings - some first heard on radio as early as 1949. I praise them highly because I've not heard educational audio this enthralling. True-to-life episodes do not hide struggles, pain and even character flaws. Therefore, triumphs are all the more inspiring. We believe that we too can develop a more godly character and succeed in our endeavors - even among difficulty.

With Your Story Hour children are led to look-up-to and unconsciously imitate those men and women who live purposeful lives, who regard sincerity, selflessness and purity among the highest virtues. Modern education is wishy-washy with blurred lines of good and evil. In our homeschools we can joyfully use heroism, with its roots in Christian virtue, to its fullest advantage. Isn't this an important and empowering part of a Christian education?

After purchasing one album we began collecting others. A favorite of ours is album #7, "Patterns of Destiny on 12 CDs." A partial list of its heroes: John Bunyan, Florence Nightingale, George Mueller, Clara Baron, Louis Pasteur, Dwight L. Moody, George W. Carver.


These audio stories are about people who contributed to our society in various ways. Running time for each story is between 48 and 56 minutes.

I am going to use the Early American History Primary Study Guide from Beautiful Feet. I have all the books to go with the study guide. Are these CDs just those stories in audio form, or are they other stories? Thanks.

BEST ANSWER: Your Story Hour is a completely different set of stories. They cover the same topics that you read from the "living books" recommended, but they are not the same. Your Story Hour is a dramatized retelling of some parts of history. We used Early American History Primary, but we rarely did the Your Story Hour accompaniment because it has a strange way of fading in and out of "scenes". We could hear that they were still talking, but we couldn't understand what they were saying because it was fading out. This was very frustrating to my children, so we only did a few of the stories from it.
Is Your Story Hour a Christian CD?
A shopper on Aug 4, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Not that I know of. We only listened to the first CD or so, but I heard no Christian perspective. Honestly, my kids weren't engaged for very long. The narrators spoke in character, but the stories became tedious. They rarely listen to audio books, etc, though. It's probably just a personal preference
