A Regular Babysitter Is What Every Mom Needs

Moms need a babysitter. It's a fact that has been proven time and time again. Moms can only handle so many tasks at hand.  

As it is, taking care of the kids is a handful already; add to that the household chores and errands moms need to do as well. If moms don't get any…

Hallmark’s Recordable Storybooks Help You Stay in Touch When You Can’t Be There

By Jennifer James, Founder, Mom Bloggers Club

I have partnered this summer with Hallmark as one of their Storytellers to share their recordable storybooks with you.

This month I recorded All the Ways I Love You by Theresa Trinder and illustrated by Aaron DeWitt. It is a sweet story of a parent's love for their child. What makes Hallmark's storybooks so remarkable is they allow a loved one who can't be with a child to still read them a story. This is great for grandparents, parents in the military, and anyone who would love to read a story in their own voice to that special someone in their life.

In my case, I don't get to see my young niece often, so this is a perfect way for her to still hear my voice even though I am states away.

Listen to my audio review of All the Ways I Love You. Not only can you hear more about why I love these storybooks, you can also hear how the recordable storybooks sound.

While the storybooks are electronic they are surprisingly lightweight. Here's a side view of the storybook I just recorded.

The instructions to record the storybook are extremely simple. You can record a storybook in as little as fifteen minutes. While I'm sure you would want to invest more time in your story, it really it that easy to use and record.

Next month I will be recording another story. This time I will post video of how easy the storybooks are to use and share with children in your life.

For more information, visit www.hallmark.com.


I have five Hallmark recordable storybooks to give away: Hey Diddle, Diddle, Bright and Beautiful, I Love You Grandma, My Grandpa and Me and We're Not Scared of Anything.

To win, simply leave a comment! Giveaway ends July 31, 2010.

This giveaway is sponsored by Hallmark and this summer I serve as one of the Hallmark Storytellers.

We did the Night Before Christmas (mom, dad, grandma, grandpa) recordable Hallmark book last Christmas and I know it will be something my daughter will treasure forever. I would love to win another one for her! Thank you for the opportunity and I'm so glad that Hallmark came out with new ones!

Thanks for hosting this contest. I think the I Love You Grandma book sounds the best of all. How fun it must be for you to record reading kid's stories!

This is such a remarkable gift idea. Wow Hallmark has done it again. This would help loved ones who are staying miles or continents away!!

My niece lives far away. I'd love one of these for her.

These are perfect for my grandchildren.

This would be perfect for my in-laws as they will soon move out of the country to retire. Thank you!

Oh how neat - I love it! these would be great!

What a thoughtful (and inordinately clever) idea! My Mom's been in the hospital for a month now and I'm certain the "I Love You, Grandma" book (read aloud by my 9 year old twins) would be a perfect way for Mom to be reminded that she's loved beyond compare.

This is fabulous! What a great idea! With a military daddy away often this would be perfect!

Wish I had the chance to do a recorded message for my kids before my mom passed, would love to do one from their remaining grandparents.

I LOVE THIS IDEA! My husband is from the UK so no matter where we are, there is always one set of grandparents who miss out on time with my son :-( Would be cute to have them 'virtually' there, reading a story...
Comment by Desiree on July 16, 2010 at 12:32pm
