Holiday Giveaway: Record a Story and Make Memories that Last

My mind is always boggled by people who come up with clever ideas. And I must say, the Record a Story storybook is a wonderfully clever idea that can mean so much to a child, especially this time of year.

Record a Story is an interactive children’s book that lets parents and other relatives record themselves narrating a story for kids. The narration plays when each page is turned, allowing families to “be together” at story time, even when distance keeps them apart. It’s a great product for working moms and dads who travel a lot, divorced parents, or for grandparents who live far away.

This past Veteran's Day, the publisher of the Record a Story, Publications International, Ltd., launched a new program called Operation Record a Story. With this program, military Moms and Dads away from their children will be able to share story time as a family.

Thousands of Record a Story™ books are being donated to the United Through Reading® Military Program for deployed service members to record for their children. Recordings will take place at 10 USO centers and United Through Reading locations in the United States and in the Middle East. The books, together with a video of the parent recording the story, will then be shipped to kids in time for the holidays.

Thanks to the publishers of Record a Story, (1) lucky HC&B reader is going to win their own 'Twas the Night Before Christmas Record a Story book.

Here's how to enter:
  • Post a comment here with your name and location (city and state)
  • Please post your comment by Monday, December 13th at 11:59 PST
  • Become a Follower of Houses, Couches and Babies to receive an additional entry (those that are already followers automatically receive an additional entry)
  • For a third entry, "like" Houses, Couches and Babies on Facebook (again, if you already like HC&B on Facebook, you will automatically receive the third entry)
The winner will be randomly selected and announced shortly after December 13th. Please make sure to check back to see if you win, as the winner will not be contacted!

Good luck!

Oh, and if you want to purchase a Record a Story now, you can pick one up at Toys R Us, Walmart, Borders and Barnes & Noble stores nationwide. Record a Story books are also available on Amazon.com.
