I can't tell you how many times I've heard parents discussing how their children love listening to the Rolling Stones, ACDC, or Eminem in the car. While these parents might think that's something healthy for their children to listen to, I whole-heartedly disagree. The Glory Stories volumes, however, have changed the way our kids travel. My four year-old and two year-old sons absolutely love Glory Stories--so much so that the CD is starting to skip from listening to it so often! These wholesome tales of the saints are entertaining to listen to, as they have different voices for the characters and sound effects to help children visualize what is going on. The stories also stick to the truths of the Catholic faith, and they are easy to understand for younger children.
My two year-old, after listening to the St. Joan of Arc story (their favorite), walked up to me and said, "Mom, I can do all things through God who strengthens me," because he listened as St. Joan of Arc spoke this verse during battle. Glory Stories are a great way for children to learn more about the heroes of the Catholic faith and to retain the lessons for use in their daily lives. The CD's also come with coloring books to accompany the stories so the children can see pictures while they listen to the stories.
These wonderful stories of the saints are worth owning, and I only wish that Catholic World Mission would produce more! These make great gifts for children, grandchildren, and Godchildren. There are many CD's out there for children that are labeled as "Catholic," but Glory Stories are by far the best I've ever listened to.
