Adventures in Odyssey – Taking the Plunge {a Review and Giveaway}

Use Adventures in Odyssey in to help build character into your children.

This is a sponsored post. I was given a free copy of Adventures in Odyssey: Taking the Plunge in exchange for this review. All opinions are honest.

The Adventures in Odyssey series is a great character building tool. Not only is it fun for children to follow along with, they learn valuable lessons as well. In a world saturated with so much twaddle and poor moral standards, this is a very refreshing series.

The characters are lively and full of emotion. They play out scenes dramatically and

In Taking the Plunge {Volume 59}, the characters focus on decision making and how being hasty in making some decisions could be wrong when you don’t think them through.

One scenario involved a young woman who was proposed to by a young man and rather than jumping in with both feet, she decided to think it through.

She thought through how different they were in their spiritual walks and wondered if they would be a good match. She also considered what it might do to her relationships with her friends. When I say different in their spiritual walks, I just mean that she is more quiet and reserved while he is more open and out loud in the church setting.

The series takes you through several different scenarios and how the characters worked through their issues, what they were thinking and how those who surrounded them responded.

Topics included in Taking the Plunge are expectations, discernment, family legacies, false fronts, teamwork, and resolving conflict.

This particular Volume is geared more toward older kids, such as tweens. The problem solving skills are definitely for a more logical thinker and the story content was suited toward older children.

What I love about Adventures in Odyssey is that they are wonderfully put together stories that seamlessly build character into my children as they learn things such as problem solving and decision making.

They are a wonderful alternative to television! 🙂

This volume has about 2 1/2 hours of episodes. My eldest children listened to the whole thing in one sitting as they were drawing.

Listening to Adventures in Odyssey

While everyone could hear it, my younger children lost interest in the topics so they mostly scampered about, in and out of the house.

But we have other favorites they like to listen to. My eight year old asked if he could listen to a different episode in another room. I can’t speak highly enough about this series. Which is why we’re giving one away!

If you’d rather just go grab a copy, you can go to the Tyndale website and purchase one here. It would make a great Christmas gift. Hey, it’s never too early to start!
