    I love all these Naxos audio books for juniors children I listen to them with my 4 and 6 year olds on our long school run and it s benefitting my education as well as theirs They re probably aimed at a bit older children 6 or 8 onwards maybe but it depends on their interests, and my sons certainly understand and enjoy most of it apart from some of the scientific detail They are interesting, cover a good range of subjects and are beautifully read by Benjamin Soames he seems to do most of them.

    Having tried out a number of audio books for my family to listen to while we endure long car journeys but resist the temptation to strap DVD players to back of the front seats I have settled on anything produced by Junior Classics The Greek myths were excellent, and also warranted five stars, but this Audio CD about nine famous people in Western history is so far the best of the lot.There is a wealth of information in these concise and well told mini biographies that I wished that I had known for years, and I m delighted that my children might be able to recall even some of them as a superb grounding in general knowledge and history The biographies are far from mere history lessons There is a well chosen selection from the last 500 years The chapters on Shakespeare, Nelson and Mozart are particularly compelling.

    I am happy with the purchase It is a great aid for children with a difficult time reading as it is an audio book I also liked the bitesized amount of history facts Just the right amount of information on each historical person presented I enjoyed listening to the disc as well.This product was also delivered in a timely manner and in good quality Good purchase.

    I entertain my minivan bound children with books on tape CD The best are the Harry Potter series There are many other good ones And this is a good non fiction title for children.Kids need heroes, and this tape provides my 5 and 7 year old boys with some impressive ones The heroes come from the worlds of politics, science, literature, religion This tape is one of my 7 year old son s favorites It has a very positive message for him He gets ideas of what he could be.Volume 2 the one I have tells the stories of some historical figures, emphasizing all the positive and heroic qualities of each Alexander the Great, Joan of Arc, Leonardo Da Vinci, Isaac Newton, Ludwig van Beethoven, Louis Pasteur, Marie Curie, Mahatma Gandhi, and George Washington.As an adult accustomed to having his heroes routinely discredited, I find these idealized portraits naive, but kind of refreshing If you have kids you know that they have a purpose to introduce you to the world again, and show you its wonder These portraits of heroes are simplified and abstracted in a way that highlights their abilities No jaded cynicism here These scientists, thinkers, statesmen, musicians, were all leaders My young leader could do worse than to select a role model from one of these larger than life heroes.Two other notes.1 The tapes are abridged, while the CDs are not Buy the CD.2 has one description for both volume 1 and 2 Misleading They contain different people.Vol 1 Queen Elizabeth I, Abraham Lincoln, Christopher Columbus, Horatio Nelson, William Shakespeare, Wolfgang Amadeus MozartVol 2 Alexander the Great, Joan of Arc, Leonardo Da Vinci, Isaac Newton, Ludwig van Beethoven, Louis Pasteur, Marie Curie, Mahatma Gandhi, George Washington This is the one I am reviewing

    Got 3 of the series for when my 7 and 10 year old grandkids would be spending a week with me We planned trips to the museums and observatory and how nice it was to see a statue carved by the person you had been listening about on the tape, or see an early telescope credited to Galileo after listening about his life It just rounded off the educational fun travels perfectly Recommend the one on Greek legends, historical figures and famous scientists All of them Greek legends was the most fun And I learned so much myself
