Welcome to this weekend’s giveaway–sponsored by one of our family’s favorite homeschooling resources, Sparkle Stories!

About Sparkle:

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 nine original Story Series – all of which follow the seasons of the year.

This year we also have a brand new holiday goodie to share with you, the Martin & Sylvia advent calendar:

Each day of December, the advent calendar offers a new story — in which this homeschooled brother and sister pair take a small adventure and make a delightful discovery.

This Audio Book includes one long introductory story, followed by 24 daily audio stories, to be enjoyed December 1st through the 25th–that’s five hours of holiday audio!

One Simple Homeschool reader will win the following:

:: the Martin & Sylvia Around the Year package (5 seasonal audio books)
:: the Martin & Sylvia Audio Advent Calendar
:: a one year subscription to any of the Martin & Sylvia Series

The winning family can keep these to enjoy or give them as gifts for the holidays!

  1. I have 7 and 9 year-old girls. Our days are busy and by the end of the day, when it gets dark early, we need a story. During Advent, we like to take a break before bed to light the Advent wreath candles and read a story together.
    I already like both sparkle stories and simple homeschool on FB.

  2. My girls are 4 and 7. They share a room, and love listening to stories as they fall asleep.
