Recently, my older son and I discovered a wonderful activity to share while his little brother is having an afternoon sleep and I am getting a bit of work done... We have been listening to Sparkle Stories!
If you've not yet heard about Sparkle Stories (or have heard of them but have never listened to their stories) you are in for a marvelous treat. They have eleven story series to choose from, plus they have just launched a new audio book of stories about children and knitting.
On the Sparkle Stories website, you can listen to samples of stories from each series, and that is how my son and I became hooked. We decided to subscribe to 3 series: my son chose Junkyard Tales, I chose the series called So Many Fairies and together we chose By Thistle, By Thimble (we are also sorely tempted by the Saturday Sparkle series...) These stories are so thoughtfully composed -- we always have fun & interesting discussions after listening.
Have you had a listen yet? Which series is your favorite?
