Weekend Giveaway: Sparkle Stories

This giveaway has now now ended. Thanks for entering!

Welcome to another one of our weekend giveaways–and one of my family’s favorite online discoveries, Sparkle Stories.

These audio stories are lovely for quiet times during the heat of a summer day or for road trips and summer travel! They accompanied us during our recent adventure in the United Kingdom–to keep little bodies entertained on airplanes and long car rides.

From Sparkle Stories:

“Sparkle is an online subscription to high-quality audio stories for children and families. Each week Sparkle Stories delivers delightful audio stories to subscribers around the world.

We offer five original Story Series, plus a sixth Series with classic stories, songs and games, all designed to entertain and inspire the whole family. (Jamie’s note: Two of the storylines, about Martin & Sylvia, feature a homeschooling family.)

Audio stories, or stories told out-loud, are untethered to images viewed on a screen. The child is free and able to paint her own pictures out of her own imagination. She becomes relaxed and entranced – committing herself fully to a fantastic adventure.

Sparkle Stories are fun, Sparkle Stories are inspiring, and Sparkle Stories are good for young minds and spirits! Our stories inspire a sense of wonder and magic in life, encourage creativity and a strong sense of self, and even illuminate common childhood challenges.”

Two Simple Homeschool winners will receive a one-year subscription to the new Sparkle Car series! 

You’ll get a new Sparkle Car each month – an hour’s worth of audio that features collections of new stories mixed with traveling verses, songs and fun car games.  (a $72 value!)
