Our family lives Ralph and Cameron!

Ralph Moody's books are amazing and we are endeared to them even more because of Mr. Bierle's narration.

Still going strong

We have enjoyed reading each of these lovely Ralph Moody books. Cameron Beierle does an excellent job reading and giving each "character" a unique voice. The story line is addicting that my kids are always disappointed when it's over. What will we do when we finish book 8?? We may all have a day of tears. Ralph's life was one to write home about; interesting, full of character and loyalty, a real family everyone would have had an honor to get to know. These books are books that the whole family will enjoy, which makes this book perfect for any road trip.

Excellent!

We thoroughly enjoyed this book, as we did the first two in the series. Perfect for our fifth grade boys. So very well written and performed!

A Favorite

Super good story! So fun to listen to. It is history and adventure with a little bit of romance. Good for both adults and kids.

Some of the Best children's books of all time

The Little Britches books are some of the best children's books of all times! I never read these growing up but was introduced to them as an adult while homeschooling my children. We all could hardly wait to read more. This is our second time to read them (though this time through audiobook). The narrator does a wonderful job making each character's voice distinct. They are a delight to listen to! I would highly recommend reading or at least listening to these with your children. Shows the lost art of really working hard and persevering through troubles and difficulties. Exceptional!!!!
