Give the Gift of Storytelling
I know, this post title sounds like a Hallmark commercial.
But really, I find reading to my son a true pleasure and cherish with all my heart. When he learned to read it was bittersweet for me as I love love love cuddling and reading to my son… something he graciously continues to allow me to do.
And that’s why this A Story Before Bed is an online service that I think is a home run.
Just choose a book, record a video of yourself reading the book into your webcam, e-mail the link to your book to a special child in your life, then s/he can play back the book with your narration ad infiniteum.
I tried it and the process took 5 minutes from start to finish. Included in the process was me recording and previewing the narrated book before purchase.
If you can’t be around with a special child in your life this holiday season, there are a couple of Christmas books to choose from. Also, if you know of aunts, uncles, grand or godparents that you will miss this season, suggest that they stay in touch with the kiddo(s) by sharing a special story.
The discounted cost on holiday books is only $4.95 right now. But, the experience is really priceless.
