Sugar Creek Gang

You may have tangible wealth untold; caskets of jewels and coffers of gold.
Richer than I you can never be - I had a mother who read to me.
 
I just love this poem from Beloved Books. Reading together as a family has always been a big part of our lives and I hope that my kids feel they are rich from our time together.
 
Another thing we like to do as a family, usually while we are cleaning house, is listening to good quality books on CD. The last few weeks we have been listening to the Sugar Creek Gang from Beloved Books.

The first Sugar Creek Gang book was published in 1939. Paul Hutchen was a preacher when he came down with tuberculosis. While he was recuperating he decided he would try writing and eventually wrote 36 books in the series. The CD version of the books were recorded by Paul Ramseyer. Beloved Books began manufacturing and distributing of the Sugar Creek Gang Time audio stories in 1998.

We have been listening to volume 1 of the Sugar Creek Gang. These stories take us on the adventures of a group of boys called the Sugar Creek Gang. They are much different from what we think of as gangs today, they are young boys looking for adventure. Some of the boys are Christians and they convince some others to accept bible teachings for their own lives.

  • Sugar Creek Gang Volume 1
    • The Swamp Robber
    • The Killer Bear
    • The Winter Rescue
    • The Lost Campers
    • Chicago Adventure
    • The Secret Hideout
Even though the stories are about boys all three of my girls ages 7, 10, & 11 loved listening to the them. While we listened to some of the stories we were suppose to be cleaning the house, but I would occasionally catch the girls listening so intently they forgot what they were doing.

These stories have become some of our favorite to listen to. I love that they portray Christianity in a good way & that the boys try to encourage others to become Christians. It is so refreshing to hear stories that have family values and that the children have a responsibility to the family first before their friends and activities. One of the boys dad is an alcoholic and this behavior is discussed in a negative way with everyone wanting to help him and his son. Sin and disobedience is discouraged throughout the stories.
