This albums deals with harder issues and needs parental guidance. "Model Child" deals with eating disorders, "Hold Up!" is a bit on the scarry side when a man robs or tries to rob Whit's End ... and the 2 Part Episode "The Cross of Cortes" is also a bit scarry when Whit and Eugene go on a Treasure Hunt and get stuck in a collapsing cave.
**** On a funnier note, the episode "Room Mates" is a riot when Eugene and Bernard room together while Eugene's dorm room is treated for bugs.

Bought for my 6 year old daughter, and my 10 year old and 13 year borrow them all the time! All three of my children love this program! I highly recommend!

I order these for my grandson, but I have to listen to them first. They are great entertainment on the drive to and from work.

After reading Christianity Todays study series Faith and Pop Culture, I can honestly say that I feel as if we, as Christians, have given up. It seems as if the contributors to this project (all chosen by Christianity Today) want to see just how close to the edge of sin a Christian can be and still be okay in Gods eyes. Instead of seeing how Christ-like we can become, this book seemingly encourages the Christian to see how worldly we can become and still wear the badge Christian. In the chapter about movies, the article written by the movie reviewer suggested that we, as Christians, should not base our cinematic judgment on R-ratings or even on nudity, excessive violence, or bad language. It was suggested that those were just realistic views of the sinful world we live in, and that we should embrace the wickedness and view it as good, realistic cinematic work. As a conservative Christian, this book was written from the exact opposite viewpoint of that which I hold. While I understand that there is sin and wickedness (even explicitly documented in the Scriptures) in this world, I do not believe it is our job, as Christians, to applaud it and conform to it. Overall, I would not recommend spending money on this book. Its a typical publication from Christianity Today.In case any are wondering, I joined the Thomas Nelson book review bloggers team! I will be posting reviews of several different types of Christian publications distributed by Thomas Nelson in the future.

Great for kids and those kids at heart. I have listened to Adventures in Odyssey for years. Even though I have no children of my own, I love to listen to them & I own a large number of the Audiobooks. Some day I hope to have the entire set!!

I love odyssey! I'm eight years old, and Odyssey is my favorite program. I love to listen to these cds! my favorite show in this album is Hold Up, it really teaches about the basic evilness of man. I also love Model child, and the Cross of Cortes. These shows are ones that everyone can learn from.
