Around the World Stories: discount codes, today only!

Are you looking for a way to inspire your kids to learn about the world? Around the World Stories creates original audio stories for kids that make learning about other cultures an unforgettable adventure.

You can get 20% off the  6-story Artists set, TODAY ONLY (11-30) when you use coupon code “ARTISTSATHOME”, and/or a FREE month to try out their Europe stories monthly subscription when you use coupon code “EUROPEMONTH”.

We just purchased the Artists story set and my kids are realy excited about incorporating a new element into our artist study this year. Of special interest: the Georgia O’Keeffe story, as we are studying O’Keeffe in our Classical Conversations co-op this year.

Here’s more info on Around the World Stories:

Each week subscribers receive a 30-minute story told from the perspective of a child in another country, so young listeners learn how kids in other cultures live, play, learn, eat and celebrate.

Your kids will catch a cotton-tailed tulip thief and meet the king of the Netherlands. They’ll celebrate New Year’s Eve in Madrid and find a treasure map in Greece. They’ll race a Leprechaun in Ireland and help solve the case of Mozart’s missing violin in Austria.

The stories are written for kids ages 5 to 12 and each includes a story guide with discussion points, recipes and activity ideas.

Europe Stories

Subscribers receive a new audio story each week in their inbox along with activity ideas, background, discussion topics and recipes related to the story and the country. Four stories are dedicated to each country.

Artists Around the World Stories

Also available is a fun 6-story set about important painters and artistic styles throughout history. Through this exciting series, listeners can travel back in time to meet Monet, Van Gogh, Picasso, Michelangelo, O’Keeffe and Kandinsky.

To follow their travels and stories, you can visit their Facebook page or Instagram or website at Around the World Stories.

Free stories for Halloween from Sparkle Stories

We have always enjoyed listening to the Martin & Sylvia stories from Sparkle Stories. They’re very relaxed, day-in-the-life stories of a brother and sister pair. The Sparkle Stories blog is a great place to find FREE stories, as well as the iTunes podcast (which is what we use). They are releasing 10 free Halloween stories on October 27, and if you’d like to receive those, you can find more information here.

We have only listened to the Martin & Sylvia stories, but there are other series too. Also, like anything, please listen first to make sure the stories are a good fit for your family.
