Hallmark Recordable Storybooks

Noodlebug and I love to read together.  It is definitely a special time of the day that I cherish with my child.  Sometimes, I sit at work wishing I were home at that very moment reading GOOD NIGHT, WASHINGTON DC for the 20th time.  (his current favorite from his Auntie Vieve)  So, when I heard about Hallmark's new recordable line of storybooks I got excited. I could record my voice reading the book and then Noodlebug could have me "read" him a book even when I was at work. Well, I waited too long for the NIGHT BEFORE CHRISTMAS version and it sold out. I had the chance to get it for $19.99 with a coupon. Now, they are going for $100 on eBay. Bummer.  Then, I heard that Hallmark is releasing two new titles for Spring:  ALL THE WAYS I LOVE YOU and BRIGHT AND BEAUTIFUL.  I just snapped up the titles at my local Hallmark store where they are already flying off the shelves. (maybe I should have bought more?)  Anyway, they are a bit pricey but it's worth it to me to have that connection with my little one.  Now I know what Noodlebug is getting for Valentine's Day!

(I have not received any compensation or other benefits from Hallmark for this post nor do I have any connection with Hallmark)

What a cool idea. Pretty soon technology will have advanced so much that it will literally enable you to be in two places at once. I'm sure Aidan will love these books!

I was lucky enough to purchase a copy of The Night Before Christmas for my grandchildren who are currently living in Stuttgart, Germany. My two and a half year old grandson is still asking to have Oma and Opa read this book to him at bedtime. What a wonderful creation from Hallmark! I'm picking up All the Ways I Love You for Valentine's Day today!

That's wonderful, Kathy!! I think it makes a really special gift. Especially for those who are often separated from their loved ones.
