    I am a great fan of audio books. While I love the feel of holding a book in my hand, and love the smell of old pages turning, our family also enjoys listening to quality books while we travel in the car or work at home. Paul White's, Jungle Doctor and the Whirlwind, has landed itself in the category of quality audio. This is the first recorded book of four in the Jungle Doctor series currently available.

    The books were authored by Paul White, an Australian missionary doctor to Tanzania, Africa over 50 years ago. What struck me from the onset of the book was the author's reliance upon God and His sovereignty. Paul and his wife Mary planned on spending much longer in Africa than they did, but due to Mary's ill health, were forced to leave Tanzania. As a result of such steadfast reliance upon God, the author was able to rejoice in God's having reached more people through his ministry at home than abroad. He was blessed to hear many stories of young people traveling abroad as missionaries due to God having worked in their lives through the Jungle Doctor series.

    The narrator, Paul Michael, does an excellent job of differentiating characters' voices. This is a high quality voice production and is not "cheesy". The voice caricature draws the listener in and has one eagerly awaiting the next chapter. The listening audience is whisked into the tale of a dry and near waterless desert where survival is difficult. Sin is dealt with frankly, graciously and Scripturally in a manner that is easy to understand and apply. Dr. White is an excellent role model of faith in God alone as he encounters trial after trial, continually turning to God and pointing those around him to the Bible. Natural disaster, disease, betrayal, and disappointment are all encountered by Dr. White during this first installment in the Jungle Doctor series.

    I greatly enjoyed listening to this book and am excited to recommend it to you_and I am looking forward to listening again with my family.

    A big thank you to Christian Audio and Christian Focus 4 Kids for providing me with a free copy of this audio book in exchange for my honest review.

    Jungle Doctor and the Whirlwind

    I love Jungle Doctor tales! How great that now you can listen them on audio! Paul White was an Australian missionary to Africa. When he returned to Australia he wrote many "Jungle Doctor tales." In this story he highlights how money can corrupt our thinking of what is truly valuable if we aren't careful. I liked the reader for this book as he had did a good job on the accents in my opinion. It definitely made it more interesting.

    Con: I would probably skip the first chapter unless I wanted to hear all the meanings for the African words and the dictionary definitions_

    Pro: This book is not only good for children, but also adults.

    Note: this book is probably more appropriate for 13 and up unless your child is quite the reader. I found myself having to explain things a little too much to those who were not up to par educationally - but they still received benefit from the story.

    Try out the Jungle Doctor tales_I think you'll enjoy them!

    I have finished listening to an audio book called Jungle Doctor and the Whirlwind by Paul White.

    I will admit when I first received this review opportunity, I listened to a sample portion of the book and was not sure this would be a book I would enjoy. However, I am glad I had the opportunity to listen.

    My thoughts:

    This was a wonderful book. I enjoyed the stories of the life faced by this missionary doctor and the people he was trying to help in Africa. In this book there is an outbreak of dysentery and he works to help the people who are sick and tries to slow the spread of the disease. The way he shared the truth of the Word with them through stories and fables was enjoyable and made me stop and think as I listened. The book has a great lesson in my opinion.

    One thing that was hard for me to follow was all the characters. It took me a while to figure out who was who in this book. A list is given at the beginning which is helpful and I know if I was reading the print version I would have been able to refer back to this list to refresh my memory. The more I got into the book the easier it was to remember each one.

    At first I thought the book would be hard to understand but I quickly became accustomed to the narrator, Paul Michael. I enjoyed his accent and the way he read this book.

    Thank you to the christianaudio Reviewers program for providing this audio book for my review.

    I've read the first three Jungle Doctor books to my children (ages 7 and almost 9) and have been thrilled with the content. Not only do the books teach Christian values but they have also introduced us to the culture and language of the native people of Tanzania. In addition, we've learned about diseases and medical treatments (of 1938 - 41) and have found ourselves frequently consulting our Book of the Microscope or the Internet to find additional details about plague, malaria, etc.

    But I knew my children had really absorbed what I'd read to them when, after finishing Jungle Doctor and the Whirlwind, my daughter and son pulled me over to their latest Lego "set-up." They had made a small medical facility complete with dispensary (stocked with all the appropriate antibiotics), a microscope, beds, medical staff, and even a truck to pick up sick villagers.

    With all that the Jungle Doctor books have to offer I'm planning on purchasing additional Jungle Doctor books in the future - and I just might end up with the entire set of 19 books!
