Recordable Storybook

Wednesday, October 12, 2011

I snuck into the bathroom and closed the door before I re-opened the Recordable Storybook.

I had cracked it in my bedroom, but it started talking to me, "To begin recording . . . " I slammed it shut, fearful that little ears would hear and come rushing in.

In my hiding place, I muffled the speaker with my shirt and read through the beautiful book, God's Christmas Promise. It is the familiar Christmas story, of course, but the focus is on God's continuing promise of love and salvation for us:

I love how those last few words bring the story forward to today. It is not just a book to close and say, "That was nice." The story is real, it is present, it is ongoing.

Satisfied, I closed the book, and walked it back down the hall to my visiting parents. They took it home and will give it to my boys for Christmas. I know the boys will enjoy hearing Ninnie and Granddaddy's voices all year, but I sort of think "N&G" are even more thrilled to know that their voices will be available any time the grandchildren want. The subject matter couldn't be more perfect.

  1. Having just been at the funeral of my friend's dad, I guess I would say that a voice I would like to hear anytime I want would be my mom or dad. Her dad recorded messages to each of his children, his grandson and his wife. Plus he recorded random lists of things as well. How precious those recordings will be! 

  2. Knowing that we'll be moving next summer several states away, I would love for my boys to be able to hear my parents read them a book especially a book about God's love for us.  

  3. Well I really wish it could be my dads voice, but since it cannot then I would love for the boys to hear my moms voice. What fun!

  4. I would love to have had my dad record a book before he passed away.  What a treasure for our kids!  Great idea!

  5. My grandmother is 96 years old so my time with her is limited. I would love for her to record her voice , not only for myself but for my kids.

  6. What a great idea ... I love it!! Since we live very close to my parents, and my children see them just about every day, I would love to have my father-in-law record in this beautiful book. He reads the Christmas Story in Luke every year to us all, so even though my children are young, they see it being read straight from the Bible. This is something special they do with him, so to have this book recorded with his voice for them would be something my husband and I would greatly treasure for them.
    I'm starting to pick up blogging again ... slowly! I've missed it, and my special blogging friends!!!

  7. My children love my sister-in-law, Kim, and I think they would listen to her voice all day long!  Even though she lives in town, we don't spend very much time with her.  Not only does she love my children as her own, she's a wonderful role model for my girls.

  8. My kids don't get a lot of time with my grandparents, so I'd love for them to record this book for my kids.

  9. Congratulations, Anne!  You won :) Please send me an email, and I'll give you the coupon code.
