Three Free Stories for Thanksgiving
November 13, 2018
It's almost Thanksgiving here in the U.S., and I wanted to share some of our favorite stories for celebrating family, togetherness and gratitude.
Below you'll find three free stories, all of which share a bit of inspiration - for appreciative eating and for the connection that comes with sharing a meal with others.
SO MANY STORIES
There are many more stories like these in the Sparkle Subscription. In fact we have over 1000 original stories!
That's hours of happy listening! Perfect for snuggling up at holiday time.
"Home Grown Thanksgiving"
For as long as either Martin or Sylvia can remember, they have gone to their Grandparent’s home to celebrate Thanksgiving. But this year, their parents have decided to host the event at home. And not only is the traditional location changing, but Momma and Daddy have proposed to cook a Thanksgiving meal with only local ingredients – which means that everything they eat will come from their own garden or from farms nearby! Martin and Sylvia wonder: what in the world will they eat?
From the At Home With Martin & Sylvia Series
When Martin and Sylvia’s family travels south to Grandma’s House, they all think about the traditional foods she serves during their annual feast together. Daddy thinks about the mashed potatoes, Momma thinks about the baked squash, Martin thinks about the Rosemary roasted nuts and Sylvia thinks about Grandma’s Brownies. When they arrive, the question for Sylvia is – how many Brownies can she have?
From the Martin & Sylvia: More Adventures Series.
"The Fairy Feast"
Fairies, much like people, need to get to know each other – so they can work together to meet the every-day challenges of the natural world, such as storms, temperature changes and changes brought by people. And how do they become acquainted? Through feasting! So when there’s a sudden change in the backyard of twin brothers Russell and Randolph – the stonewall gnomes, brook nymphs and oak tree elves must assemble a “feast” – a special and very potent fairy gathering.
From the So Many Fairies Series.
