The Joy of Storytelling

We love telling, hearing and sharing stories. This is why you’ll find storytelling in all we do. Children take a storytelling journey whether they’re attending one of our storytelling events, using our curriculum in a classroom, playing with an activity box, or reading our animated stories. 

We teach children about world cultures and improve reading and writing skills through interactive and multi-media storytelling. Global Sleepover has programs in the USA, UK, United Arab Emirates, South Sudan, Kosovo, Egypt, India, North Africa, South Africa, and Colombia. Having already worked with 5,000 students, teachers, and parents, we are proud to continue growing. So grab your passports, pack your pajamas and join us on a Global Sleepover adventure today.

Where it All Started: A Sleepover at the White House

When one of our Founders David was 12 years old, his father worked at the White House. So David grew up going on Sleepovers at the White House. David and his friends tell stories of exciting adventures at the White House, getting into mischief with the Secret Service, and bowling at the White House bowling alley.

One day David was telling Geeta, our other Founder, this story. They decided to turn these adventures into a children’s book titled “Sleepover at the White House,” based on David’s adventures. And that’s how the idea of Global Sleepover came about. The idea quickly turned global. Why not write stories about Sleepover adventures all over the world? So while we started with a Sleepover at the White House but then grew to stories about a Sleepover in Antarctica, India, Amazon, the World Cup in Brazil, Singapore, Egypt and many other places and countries!

Education, Engagement, Entertainment

Global Sleepover Educates, Entertains and Engages children ages 5-13. We call this our Three E Methodology. Whether through storytelling workshops, summer camps, birthday parties, gift activity boxes, interactive and multi-media stories, or in-classroom curriculum, the Three E Methodology is our driving principle. We rely on this methodology because it ensues education, entertainment and engagement are incorporated in all products and services.

New Generation of Global Citizens

We know your child is growing up in a global world. For this reason, we are committed to empowering a new generation of multi-cultural global citizens, delivering equitable and transformative education and utilizing mobile, solar and interactive technology to increase access to education. Our work also benefits and reaches children in conflict and emergency settings, disadvantaged communities and children with hearing, learning or seeing challenges.
