Hallmark Recordable Books Review & Giveaway! *CLOSED*

I saw a commercial on Hallmark Recordable Books and thought it was a perfect idea! If you have relatives who don't live near you, or a spouse overseas, this is perfect! Your family member can be close to your child and read to your child without really being there! And even if you don't have far away family, this is a great personalized gift for any child!

Hallmark has a collection of 15 recordable books, and 3 are Christmas books! The Christmas books include: "The Night Before Christmas", "Frosty The Snowman" and "The Very First Christmas".

My Review

I received the book "The Night Before Christmas" to review. I haven't read it to Noah yet, but I have recorded the story, so I wanted to go ahead and give you my review. After figuring out how to actually record the story, it was really easy! It has a recorded voice that prompts you to do what you have to and its really all a matter of pressing a button! It  only took me about 10 minutes to record the story and like I said, its super easy! The story is the original one and the pictures are beautiful! This book will definately be a Christmas tradition for years to come! I love it!

Buy It!
You can purchase these books at your local Hallmark Gold Crown Store

    I'd love this book for my daughter since I'll be going back to work in February. It would be so fun for her nanny to be able to read it to here while I'm away!
