Sugar Creek Gang was written by Paul Hutchens in the late 1930’s as a series of wholesome Christian adventure stories for boys and girls. Beloved for generations, these books have been released as dramatized audio books to be enjoyed by the whole family. Each of the stories weaves together the Gospel, Christian living, science, poetry, hymns in exciting and adventuresome stories!
Each of the 6 volumes of the Sugar Creek Gang audio cd’s contains 6 stories and more than 100 hours of wholesome entertainment. Volume 1 contained the stories The Swamp Robber, The Killer Bear, The Winter Rescue, The Lost Campers, Chicago Adventure and The Secret Hideout. You can purchase each volume for $54.95 or just the first story, The Swamp Robber, for $4.95 with free shipping. They also offer the entire collection of 6 volumes for $279.70, a $50 savings over purchasing individually. While the $54.95 price is a bit more than I usually pay for audio books, these have been so wonderful and enjoyed by my children so much, I think it is worth it.

My older children have listened to all 6 of the stories included in the Volume 1 set multiple times since we received them. They passed them back and forth from room to room until Mr. Lego took them on a car trip with his grandfather. Miss J and Mr. Fix-It were so disappointed that they couldn’t listen to them until he got back. Their favorite story has been “The Winter Rescue”. When I told Miss J that I needed to finish writing this review she said “Oh, Mom! Tell them we love these stories and that we want you to buy all of the rest of them!”
Generally, my children would listen to these during quiet time, so I didn’t listen to all of the stories, but when they started bringing them in the car to listen to on our way to town, I was able to listen to a few as well. I really love how the young boys can get into scrapes, but always learn a lesson and handle themselves so well. They are trying to live out their Christian faith and be kind, helpful and honest. These characters have set a great example for my children and myself. I highly, highly recommend these for Christian families!!
