A slower, kinder, gentler world.

The Power of a Story

We know it works, because we've seen it with our own kids.

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 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.

Different by Design
Why 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 three or going on 12 years old, all of our stories reinforce these values.

Built With Care

Meet the people who bring the magic of Sparkle Stories to children all over the world every single day.
