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)

Oh I love this idea! So, they sell out that quickly? Grrr... I get the coupons in the mail but I never noticed them in the little flyer....I'll go check it out next pay day......wish me luck!! xo

ps....I think I'll change my voice up though......maybe have an accent....I kinda sound like a 5 year old valley girl. Whatever that is :) lol

Hippie---I will not kid you...they are expensive. But it just seems like a special way to connect with my little guy. I will give him one for Valentine's and one for Easter. I can't wait!!!! (I'm sure your little guy loves your valley girl voice!)

My mother's cousins recorded the Night Before Christmas book for Bethany. They live in Indiana, so she won't see them often. I am so grateful that they took the time to create this special memory for her, and I know Noodlebug will love his books, too!!
