Helping & Healing Audio Stories

This giveaway has ended; thanks for your interest!

“Your son struggles with fear of the dark. Your daughter is sensitive, and gets overwhelmed easily. You want your children to be more generous with each other.

What can help? Stories. Children can learn new ways of relating, and can discover new inner resources, simply by listening to stories that address their challenges.”

Sparkle Stories produces original audio stories for children.  Our stories are simple, delightful and filled with a sense of wonder.  They inspire children to play, to marvel, to laugh, to be kind.

We have eleven original subscription Story Series – all of which follow the seasons of the year. Families can subscribe and hear fresh stories each week, or they can try our Audio Books — with easy downloads right off the Sparkle site.

We also have story packages for travel, story packages to give as gifts, and stories for all ages. Perfect for every day quiet times, car rides or family travel!
