Hallmark Recordable Storybook Review and Giveaway

THIS GIVEAWAY IS NOW CLOSED!
If your child is anything like mine, they love books.  I read on average 5 books a day to Genghis.  It is a bedtime and nap time ritual to read together.  And he loves it when his Grandma reads to him.  However, he is separated by a 6 hour drive from my mom.  Every time we go for a visit one of my favorite times is when he is curled up with Grandma for a story.   But being so far away, it is not always possible for her to read to him.  Until now!

I was given the opportunity to review one of Hallmark’s recordable storybooks.  I instantly had the idea to have the book shipped to my mom so she could record it for Genghis.  Then whenever he wanted, he could have Grandma Mary read him a book.

First off I love my mom but she is not the most technical savvy person around.  She still won’t touch a computer as she is sure she will break it.  She said this book was very easy to record and came with very clear instructions.  It is as simple as pressing a button, reading the page and repeating for the whole book.  Just a few minutes later and the book was done.

When the book arrived in the mail Genghis was excited.  He gets very happy every time he gets a new book.  He insisted that we open it and read it right away.  Oh I wish you could have seen his face when we opened it to the first page and instead of me starting to read to him Grandma Mary was reading him a book!  It was a look of pure joy and excitement.   At least once a week he is able to read a book with Grandma Mary.
