Every week we'll suggest a new Story Box Playlist with a theme -- and 4-5 stories to go along!
Storybox Playlist: Stories for Going Back to School
Is it already that time again? Time for new pencils and notebooks, lunch boxes and school books. At Sparkle, we encourage all kinds of learning and hope that going back to school, homeschool, nature school, or whatever form of learning your family enjoys will be a smooth and easy one.
Storybox Playlist: Stories of Boo Boos and Cruds
It doesn't matter whether you are 5, 25 or 105 — getting hurt or sick feels horrible. My friend called the other day to ask if I could come over and make her young son a sandwich because she was too sick to get out of bed. Having the cruds or boo boo is a time when we need the support of others the most.
Storybox Playlist: Stories for a Summertime Siesta
Have you heard the phrase "lazy days of summer"? That's just what we want to evoke this week. Time to take a siesta, relax, and really take time to go slowly.
Storybox Playlist: Stories to Cool You Down
July can be so hot! In some areas of the country the temperatures move into the triple digits and stay there day and night. When the days are hot and the nights are hot, it's time to find a way to cool off.
Storybox Playlist: Stories of Sibling Squabbles
Sibling challenges can be hard for both parents and kids, so we've rounded up a few stories to guide you through examples of managing sibling squabbles and help you find a good way to work them out.

Storybox Playlist: Emergency Rest Time Toolkit
As a kid, I remember never wanting to nap or slow down. There was too much to do — too many trees to climb, books to read, art to make. But now as an adult, I see the wisdom in slowing down and resting. Being a homeschool parent, I find that rest in the afternoon is even more imperative for our sanity.
