Different by DesignWhy are our stories slower, kinder and gentler than most children’s media?
We want to create a slower, kinder, more gentle world. We believe the best way to do that is to create stories that share models for:
- How to be kind to others
- How to be respectful in thought, word and deed
- How to live in wonder and reverence for this truly incredible world
And whether your child is turning 3 or going on 12 years old, all of our stories reinforce these values.

We know it works, because we see it in our household.
We’ve seen a single story to bring confidence to a nervous child, prepare our family for a threshold, or suggest to our boys how to communicate more kindly. All these things and more shape our home life into a slower, kinder, gentler place.
And every week, Sparklers see it in their homes, too. We know this because they share their stories with us, and in turn, we share them with the Sparkle community.
— David & Lisabeth Sewell McCann
Sparkle Stories is a great way for us to transition from our very busy days into bedtime and sleep. We love to rest quietly with our seven year-old daughter. It's a rare time of day that no one is talking and everyone is listening.
