A Charlotte Mason Inspired Journey Through American History!

History comes alive in the stories and adventures of explorers and pioneers who saw in America the chance to live a dream—to freely worship God, to have a chance to own land, and search for wealth and opportunities.

In America’s Story 1, your student will:

  • Learn about those who lived & thrived in the Americas first
  • Meet the Christian Viking who accidentally discovered America around 1000 A.D.
  • Become acquainted with the many explorers and their amazing tales of the Americas
  • Discover how simple words were used to powerfully shape the course of history
  • Follow along through the Revolutionary War and watch as the Constitution of the United States of America is drafted
  • Tell of the triumphs, hardships, mistakes, and victories that together formed the nation we now know
  • and so much more!

Exciting, Interactive Stories

O’Dell’s lively storytelling style ensures history comes alive in an exciting way! Through engaging narrative, O’Dell interacts with students and draws them in to imagine the adventures, hardships, failures, and triumphs of the incredible characters who shaped American history.

Lifesaver

We actually chose this curriculum in part because it had the audio MP3 to go with it. My daughter is a struggling reader, and also an auditory learner. This was perfect! It's beautifully read and makes the lesson come alive. Well done! Wish they had this option for all subjects!
Worthy Investment
Review by
This was such a worthy investment! It was a breath of fresh air to have Ms. O'Dell, the author of the book, read it to us. We looked forward to listening to history each week!
So helpful!

This was such a help for my daughter who has reading limitations. She can listen and read along, allowing her to hear the words she can't read herself. It really was a time saver (voice saver!) for me as reading everything to her can be time consuming. I will continue to buy the series as she goes through America's Story!
Nice addition to the book

It's nice for my son to listen while looking at what is being talked about. The narrator does a great job, not 'stuffy' like some can be.
Highly recommend for audio lovers

I love the audiobook of America's Story because we can listen to it on the go, like a story. We usually listen in the car because we have a 30 min drive a few days a week and I like to get our school in as we go rather than think we have an hour of missed school. We can always go back and refer to the book or look at anything she points our for us to look at. This is one less thing I have to read aloud to my elementary student, and my Jr High girls listen as well just for fun since they are doing American History based courses as well! We love it. She's great!
Great for Sharing and Discussing (part 2)
Review by
When I wrote my first review of America's Story 1 Audio, we hadn't gone too far into the curriculum but was already pretty happy with what we were learning even just a short way though. Now that we have finished the audio in its entirety, I say enthusiastically that we were VERY happy what we learned!

First, I'd like to take back my thoughts about the narrator's voice seeming "monotoned". It was a wrong early impression that I had because our way of talking is different from hers, and to my ears, she sounded dull. I (we) did get used to her voice though and ended up really, really enjoying her telling us about our history. Both of my boys are EAGER to hear more stories and we have already started America's Story 2 audio.

Second review update, the history stories felt like actual stories and not a curriculum with only important dates and locations. Throughout each chapter, we had the opportunity to see how America was and feel the emotions of what the early American's were experiencing. The narrator really did make history come to life, she kept my boys feeling engaged, and interested. It's been a great learning experience. Well done Master Books!
Wonderful if you have multiple kids!

Having more than one child that you are teaching can be difficult when they are at different levels. This has been amazing to help us stay on task and get our history done each week!
Now My Kids Make Sure We Have Time Each Day for History!
Review by
Using this audiobook has helped SO much to make sure we fit in our history lessons for the day/week. I enjoy that I do not have to read all of it aloud all the time, and we can even listen to it on the go in the car as we go from activity to activity. I like that I can use it with multiple ages and even my older daughter learns new things from listening in with us, too! I highly recommend this as a companion to the book for kids to follow along and hear it read aloud. Bonus, it's read by the author herself!
Great for sharing and discussing!

While my high school age son is doing an assignment, I go upstairs to a quiet room to listen to the audio book with my 2 other sons. I love that they can both learn from the same curriculum without having to take turns with reading the book. I love that we can hit pause and have a deeper conversation together. This has helped my boys' comprehension so much! The chapters are approx 10 or 12 minutes long. I have already purchased Volume 2 and will be getting Vol 3 as soon as it available. This is a great choice if you, the teaching parent, are already stretched pretty thin on time or you have multiple children that are able to share. There is only 1 very minor complaint, the audio book is read aloud by a very monotoned lady or computer generated lady's voice. If the speaking voice was more natural, I feel the stories would come more to life. I was a little worried the digital voice might bore my kids and they lose interest, but that wasn't the case. We adjusted quickly and have enjoyed!
My Kids Love It!

My kids love audiobooks! I was so thrilled to find out that Angela O’Dell has an audiobook to accompany with her book. We listen to the audio while reading the book. I really recommend this to auditory learners.
