Greetings from Around the World Stories!
Around the World Stories creates fun, original audio stories about other countries and cultures for kids ages 5-12. Each 30-minute story focuses on the adventures of a child from another country. Kids will learn how other children in the world live, play, learn, eat and speak - all from the perspective of a child.
The stories can be downloaded or streamed, and each one comes with a parent guide full of discussion topics, background information, recipes and activity ideas to further enrich the experience.
SouleMama: Welcome to sponsorship on SouleMama! Please tell us about the beginnings of your business, and how you've come to be where you are now?
Tania: It's always been important to us that our kids develop a global perspective. We searched for something that we could use to help them learn about other cultures, something fun and memorable that would inspire them to learn about our amazing world. But nothing really felt right for us. So with a love of storytelling and a longing to teach children about the beauty of our world’s diverse cultures, we took a leap of faith and created Around the World Stories.
Last summer, my husband left his job, we sold nearly everything we owned and started Around the World Stories. Along with our our three daughters (plus our sweet Labradoodle) we began our one-year adventure to travel around Europe while writing stories based on the places we go and the people we meet.
We believe that stories are powerful teaching tools, and we’ve always made them a big part of our learning and our lives. Good stories not only entertain, but also teach and inspire. That’s why storytelling is a perfect way to introduce children to the world, while instilling compassion, understanding and kindness.
Not everyone can and not everyone wants to travel abroad, but we feel that learning about other cultures is important as we all strive to raise compassionate, caring and tolerant children. We are so excited to be sharing stories about other traditions, foods, customs and ways of life. Creating Around the World Stories and watching it grow has become such a great joy in our lives - more than we ever imagined.
