Book Description

Old Time Radio programs are wonderful, family-friendly entertainment. But did you know they are also a great way to enhance your homeschooling as well? Even better: These classic programs can teach your kids some things that TV, movies and video games cannot: How to be a better listener, and how to use their own imagination.

This concise, practical manual explains why listening to these classic programs can dramatically improve your children's listening skills, and how they develop a child's own creativity and imagination. It then gives you practical, proven ideas on how to easily incorporate old time radio programs into your kids' homeschooling – making history and literature “come to life” in an exciting new way.


Also included with this kindle book are FIVE full-length Old Time Radio programs (in MP3 format) especially chosen for homeschool listeners PLUS exclusive “Listening & Discussion Guides” for each program, designed to make these classic programs an even more valuable educational addition to your homeschool curriculum.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Resource to Improve Listening Skills January 14, 2013

This wonderful resource isn't just for homeschoolers. My husband has stroke related dementia. One of his ongoing problems is listening and remembering sequences of events. Old Time Radio shows have proven to be extremely enjoyable for him---which was my original purpose. Recently his occupational therapist and I have noticed that he's able to remember the sequence of events in thirty minute shows with a high degree of accuracy. Thank you for this resource. Now I have an easy way to help my husband that's enjoyable for both of us!

this freebie had good intentions, but it wasn't what I expected - I think I would just refer to YouTube

I am old enough to remember some old time radio shows. They were excellent for giving you information, entertainment, and didn't cost a fortune to do these They also piqued your interest enough that you wanted to know more. I spent a lot of time in the library as that was the " ïn place" for information in those days. I really appreciate that this family thought enough of education to start this web site and my grandchildren appreciate it also. They say they didn't learn "that" in school, so I'm happy to help them with their schoolwork in this way.
