Professional reviews

"Focus on the Family offers 12 memorable stories about responsibility, role reversals, managing money, and other topics, which are presented as lively short episodes with engaging sound effects. The multiple narrators' vocal agility and youthful, often boisterous, voices give immediacy and authenticity to each story. Listeners will hear how Grady and Mr. Whittaker learn that God can look like other people. And how Eugene determines it's time to take action in searching for his long-lost father. The best story is the one about Marvin and Tamika switching roles with their parents for a few days. The parents ask for allowances and extended bedtimes, and the kids have to figure out how to pay the bills. Previews of the next volume of stories complete this excellent audio drama. G.D.W.
