The Sugar Creek Gang - Swamp Robber FREEBIE & Discount Code

I received The Sugar Creek Gang story "Swamp Robber" on CD for my family to try out.  I had seen the Sugar Creek Gang books in many catalogs and had been wanting to purchase them for my son, Jonathan.  So when the opportunity came to do an extra review as a Gabby Mom, I was thrilled!

The Sugar Creek Gang books have been around since 1940.  I had actually never read the books, but as a mom of 3 boys I felt that they would be good for them.  My oldest loves to read but also loves audiobooks.  The boys have several on the iPod in their playlist at night.  My oldest loved it! He didn't even want to fall asleep till it was over. 

I got to listen to it the next day.  It was very well done.  I almost felt that I was there with the boys on their adventure and could see why my son stayed up to finish the story. The mystery definitely kept his attention.   As a mom, I loved the character lessons also taught in this story.  I believe that is important for a child to learn good character lessons in life.  They are important in all stages of life. 

Now that we have had a chance to try these cd's, I know we will be purchasing more of them. They are great to listen to and will be something to treasure for generations to come.

So, who wants a FREEBIE!  I am so excited to share with you the "Swamp Robber" story of the Sugar Creek Gang!  For your freebie, click here.  It is about 1/3 of the way down the page.

For those of you who would like to purchase this and other sets, I have a discount code for you!  :)  I love giving good deals and freebies!  Use this code "Lorrie12" (minus the quotes) to receive a $12 discount.  Gotta love discounts!  I hope you enjoy your freebie and use the discount to get some awesome audiobooks.

Authors & Artists - A Gabby Mom Review

I want the best for my children.  I want them to be strong & healthy, to have a sense of right and wrong, to be able to make good choices as they grow older.  As a mom I try so hard to train them up in the way of the Lord.  To have good character traits.  It isn't easy and there are so many options out there. 

This month I received ARTISTS & Authors by Lorrie Flem.  This is such a great idea for character training and I absolutely love how simple it is to use.  When I received this in the mail, my oldest (who is 10), was practically chomping at the bit when he found out it was for him to use.  He is my artist (though he loves to write too) and to encourage that natural ability, I chose this particular book for my review. 

I could have also chosen AUTHORS & Artists which focus' more on the writing aspect rather than drawing. 

The lessons in this book are short but easy to understand.  I share the lesson with my boys and ask a couple of questions then let my oldest do his drawing.  The book is labeled by theme so that way if you want to focus on something, such as honesty or forgiveness, then you can work on those first.  It also has themes for the holidays and their birthday.  In glancing over them (cause it's not time to do them yet), I am excited to see what my son draws for them.  :)  

I can't wait to see how he continues to grow as we work through this book.  I definitely plan on getting another one for my 2nd school aged son.  :) These books will be a great treasure for years to come and I am excited to have this in our tool kit for character training.

Now for the fun part!  There is a giveaway for EACH book over at Lorrie's Blog, Randy's Rib.
