    "Audio makes these stories come alive!"

    My 10 year old daughter and I LOVE the Joy Hakim History of US series! The reader's voice is pleasant, and the books really 'come alive' when they're told orally...they're really written as storybooks rather than dry text. One strength of the printed books are the numerous pictures and sidebars, which unfortunately aren't always included in the audiobook. These books make history fun and relevant.

    "Great history for Middle and Upper Schoolers"

    Adults may enjoy this series too, but it's mostly written for Middle and Upper School kids. Engaging, appropriately comprehensive for teens - highly recommend.

    "Not the whole book"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    My son needed to read this book for school and was excited that he would be able to listen to it to gain more comprehension. But, the Audible version is not the whole book, only the first 4 chapters.

    Estate planning lawyer and mom to two boys. My older son liked audiobooks as an infant, and I've listened to a lot since then.

    Story
    "Like Story of the World, but for US History"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Making Thirteen Colonies to be better than the print version?

    Although the audio version necessarily omits the pictures of the print version, the narrator -- and the story telling quality of the writing -- make this an excellent history for kids and teens on audio. Although we bought this for educational purposes, my 11 year old son has asked for this to be played at bed time, and he was not similarly attracted to the print books.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No, there's a lot to absorb and it isn't a cliffhanger. That said, we did return listening to it night after night, instead of starting a novel.


    Any additional comments?

    Although this is written at a middle school level, I found it completely enjoyable to listen to as an adult along with my son. It has enough detail that I learned something new every chapter.

    Would you listen to Making Thirteen Colonies again? Why?

    Yes, works well with my home school children


    Any additional comments?

    Wish they had the chapters separated but it does hold where you stop so if you start at the beginning of the book you are ok.
