Brinkman's Adventures - Review and Giveaway

Recently I had the pleasure of reviewing Brinkman's Adventures, an audio series  about a missionary family, and I am so delighted that I had this opportunity.  My children who are ages ten and six couldn't wait to hear each episode.  I went into this review with high hopes, but a few doubts.  Children hear and watch so many superbly created video shows and audio books, that I knew they would easily detect a third rate production.  Disney, Nickelodeon, PBS, and many other large producers spare no money when it comes to their digital creations, and our children are flooded with these samples from their earliest years.

Brinkman's Adventures is a wonderfully produced content rich series of missionary experiences, and far from third rate.  As my children listened to these tales, which they enjoyed immensely, they were allowed to get a glimpse into the family dynamics of another Christian family, and that is something they don't see on cable TV.  They enjoyed every episode and often times begged to listen to the next one.

The Brinkman's Adventures website is easily navigated and provides background information on the fictional stories they tell.

The Brinkman's want to get these stories to children, and as such they ask that you pay what you are able in order to own a CD of your own, or to download them.  The cost to produce and mail a CD is $3.50, anything above that is used to produce more stories.

One of my favorite features of the website is the behind the scenes recordings.

The Brinkman's are offering a giveaway, but I think that if you really want to enjoy these wonderful Christian tales you should consider contacting your local Christian radio station and send them a link to the site.  On Memorial Day weekend of 2012, the Brinkman's are kicking off this brand new audio drama series, on the radio
How wonderful it would be if we could help them connect to our local stations.

Brinkman's Adventures would also be a great resource for Sunday School, backyard groups, Bible Studies, and could be the theme for a creative do-it-yourself Vacation Bible School.
