Weekend giveaway: Sparkle Stories

Today’s weekend giveaway comes from Simple Mom sponsor Sparkle Stories. You and your family will fall in love with these imaginative audio adventures. From Sparkle Stories:

“Sparkle is an online subscription to high-quality audio stories for children and families. Each week Sparkle Stories delivers delightful audio stories to subscribers around the world.

We offer seven original Story Series, all designed to entertain and inspire the whole family.

Audio stories, or stories told out-loud, are untethered to images viewed on a screen. The child is free and able to paint her own pictures out of her own imagination. She becomes relaxed and entranced – committing herself fully to a fantastic adventure.

Sparkle Stories are fun, Sparkle Stories are inspiring, and Sparkle Stories are good for young minds and spirits! Our stories inspire a sense of wonder and magic in life, encourage creativity and a strong sense of self, and even illuminate common childhood challenges.”

The Giveaway

This giveaway is now closed. Three Simple Mom winners will each receive a three-month subscription to a Sparkle Storyline of their choice! To enter, simply leave any comment below.

In addition, Sparkle Stories would like to give you the opportunity to try a month of a Sparkle Stories subscription for $1. Just use their Sparkle Stories $1-for-the-first-month of subscription discount. Pick from one of their three Subscription Packages, and enjoy stories for a whole month. It’s a total of 4+ hours of high-quality audio!

If you love it, the subscription will be ongoing — you don’t have to do a thing. If you want to change it, you can simply log in to modify your subscription, or cancel. It’s all on their “Try Sparkle” page!

This giveaway ends tonight, Saturday, September 22, and I will announce the winners soon after. I hope you win!
