Adventures in Odyssey – Take It From The Top Review


List Price:  24.99 
ISBN:  978-1-58997-490-6 
4 CDs 
Release:  March 2010

Growing up I listened to Focus on the Family’s - Adventures in Odyssey, on our local radio station every night at 8:00 and on Sunday mornings before church.

It was on of the highlights of my day and week.  I could always count on a good wholesome story.  I never have to worry about questionable “language” or grown-up bad humor.  The stories and acting always were encouraging and were good examples of what to do in certain situations.

This series, Take It From The Top is no different.  I have enjoyed listening to it with my kids and then talking about the stories afterwards.  It seems to be a great resource and a wonderful alternative to television.  My kids actually beg to listen to it and I gladly turn it on for them (and me).

I found myself learning parenting techniques from the parents just like the kids are learning how to respond to certain situations.

The one thing negative I would have to say is that - some of the voices sound different than I remember growing up.  I miss Whit’s voice…then again my ears have grown up - so maybe it was just me.  (Did I just call myself old?) 

The entire series is 5 hours long.  Honestly, it just goes too fast.  This would be perfect to have along for a road trip or to listen to before bed.

Blessings to you!  You are loved!
