Take It From Me: Hallmark Recordable Storybooks Review & GIVEAWAY CLOSED

June 1, 2012

Hallmark Recordable Storybooks Review & GIVEAWAY CLOSED

When I was a little girl, my grandma used to record her and I reading books together.  It was the sweetest thing.  Now I have these adorable cassette tapes of our voices reading together.  My grandma passed away very unexpectedly and having these precious tokens of her memory are priceless!  A favorite book of my grandma's which I actually have recorded on a tape is Love You Forever by Robert Munsch.  I couldn't help think of how great it would be for my parents, who live in another state, to have this same sort of experience with my kids.  That's when I came across the Recordable Storybook collection from Hallmark.
Hallmark's Recordable Storybooks are a great way for people to connect through story!  Capture voices from loved ones near and far to create priceless memories.  A military parent, a working parent, and grandparents who live far away, can send their love through meaningful stories.
So having my parents in another state and seeing that Hallmark had Love You Forever in their collection, I was thrilled to see the tradition continue on.  My parents recorded their voices reading the book, sent it to my kids, and we were all excited to sit down together and open it up.  They got so excited when the special dedication page my parents recorded for them was played.  Then page by page, their eyes lit up and our hearts were touched by the special story being read by the familiar voice we knew and loved so much!  I was more than happy with what the Hallmark Recordable Storybook provided.  The book is a lifelong memory that my kids and I will cherish forever!
The stories are all great and have such good messages in them.
