Adventures in Odyssey: The Drop Box {Review}

I received a free copy of Adventures in Odyssey: The Drop Box from Family Christian in exchange for my honest review. I was not required to write a positive review nor was I compensated in any other way for writing the review. All opinions I have expressed are my own or those of my family. I am disclosing this information in accordance with the FTC Regulations.

I have always loved listening to the Adventures in Odyssey series on the radio (They have been around for 25 years!). A few years ago, we began listening to the series on CD in the evenings with the children (There are over 750 audio dramas from over the years to choose from!). The kids would listen as we were going around the house cleaning up from dinner or while we were working on crocheting projects in front of the fire.

So when we were offered a Sampler CD. I was so excited to get started listening to it.

Adventures in Odyssey: The Drop Box actually has three audio adventures. It has a 90 minute running time.

The Drop Box is based on a true story and the movie The Drop Box. A Korean family opens their home to children that are abandoned by their families because of physical deformities. Whit and Eugene visit Korea and help the family build a special drop box, so that people can anonymously leave their babies safely.

The Chosen One Part 1 and Part 2 is about a young girl, Kelly, that is thrown out of her home by her mother. She takes a bus ride to Odyssey. When Whit and Mr. Washington find her, she is playing an out of tune piano at Whit's end. She had been sleeping on a bench on the street. Eugene is convinced she has an internal magnet. After she is placed in foster care, Mr. Washington decides he feels lead to adopt her, but has to sit down with his family to decide. The Washington family decides to adopt her in the end.

There are 2 puzzles included to print off. One of them is a crossword like puzzle with words in English with the Korean translation with them. The other puzzle is a matching puzzle with Korean flags.

You can get your very own copy of Adventures in Odyssey The Drop Box here.

Who wants this?
This is a wonderful story for families that like to listen to Adventures in Odyssey stories, enjoyed watching the Drop Box, or like listening to stories based on how people change the world for the Lord.

How we Used it in our Homeschool
The kids and I listened to the CD during lunch time. The kids begged to keep listening after every time I turned it off. After we listened to The Drop Box, the kids made a drop box of their very own in our basement. They pretended to receive and care for babies brought to them.

Wishing you homeschool blessings,
