The intricacies of friendship has been a popular topic of conversation in our home as of late. So when I had the opportunity to check out a set of six stories from Adventures in Odyssey entitled Up in the Air on true friendship and reconciliation, I thought Caroline and I would find it interesting and timely!

I received this product for free and am being compensated for my time to write this review. All opinions are my own and I was not required to write a positive review.

Adventures in Odyssey Series

If you aren’t familiar with Adventures in Odyssey, they have been around a long time. A LONG time. The series is produced by Focus on the Family and began in 1987. It amazingly totals over 800 episodes now.

Adventures in Odyssey is the ongoing story about a small town called Odyssey. Much of the story centers around an ice cream shop called Whit’s End, owned by a gentleman named John Avery Whittaker.

The stories are dramatized in a way that kids find highly-engaging and entertaining. In the midst of it all, listeners learn important life and faith lessons without the stories being excessively preachy.

If using audio dramas would be new for your family, there are lots of ways to incorporate these into your life. There are many ways audio dramas can come in handy in so many places!

  • Car trips
  • Running errands
  • Homeschooling
  • Character development
  • Winding down at bedtime
  • When kids are sick and need something quiet to do

“We who live in quiet places have the opportunity to become acquainted with ourselves, to think our own thoughts and live our own lives in a way that is not possible for those keeping up with the crowd.”
Laura Ingalls Wilder

“After Laura and Mary had washed and wiped the dishes, swept the floor, made their bed, and dusted, they settled down with their books. But the house was so cozy and pretty that Laura kept looking up at it.”

“They were cosy and comfortable in their little house made of logs, with the snow drifted around it and the wind crying because it could not get in by the fire.”
