I just have to share this great resource that my family has been enjoying all summer. When my son needs some help getting into quiet time, and I need a little distraction so I can get some paperwork done, we've been turning to Sparkle Stories.com.
I bought a subscription, and each week new stories are ready to download. There are several story line subscriptions to choose from for different ages. I love that these are created by a homeschooling dad who used to be a waldorf teacher, because I can trust that the stories carry the values that I want to share with my child. Listening to stories is so much better then TV, and sometimes even better then picture books, because we have to create our own pictures in our minds, which strengthens the imagination muscle. And listening inspires me to be a storyteller too!
This week there is a free story available on the Sparkle Stories Blog - just click here.
There are also free sample stories to listen to on their website.
“Imagination is more important than knowledge. For knowledge is limited to all we now know and understand, while imagination embraces the entire world, and all there ever will be to know and understand.” - Albert Einstein
