Hallmark now offers over 20 wonderful books from their recordable storybook library. You can still read to your child even when you can't be there. I love this idea! There are lots of great books to choose from. I was very happy to see that they had a couple of my family's favorites like "Goodnight Moon" and "Love You Forever".
Hallmark recently added 2 new books to their collection, "The Wish My Heart Makes for You" and "You're a Hero! All the Ways You Save the Day".
My family was lucky enough to receive a copy of the new recordable storybook, "The Wish My Heart Makes for You" for review. I was very excited when I received the book and was anxious to see how it worked. Recording the story was very easy. The book came with easy directions. All you do is unscrew the battery box (tiny screwdriver needed) to begin then read the story aloud and it will record your voice.
Since I am home all day I do the majority of the reading. So I got to thinking how fun would it be to have grandma record her voice so that she could read to them.
My kids loved it. The sound quality is pretty good and my kiddos thought it was way cool hearing grandma's voice reading to them. This is my first experience with recordable storybooks and I love the idea. I think it would make a perfect gift for any child. I am excited to look into some other recordable books in the future.
