Books: Strengthen Bonds

My favorite mommy author, Sally Clarkson, often talks about tying heart strings with your children as often as you can. Last Christmas, our family wanted to do some activities and gifts that were more meaningful than just "stuff." We decided to record each adult reading a children's book. Today, my boys were so thrilled to hear their Nana reading to them! We even had a page turn chime so that the pre-readers can read along. What a gift! These recordings will last long after the kids' grandparents leave this earth. What a GIFT!

There are many simple ways to record audio, whether using a computer mic or a free iPhone app. I then uploaded the audio files to iTunes, which converted them to email-able mp3 format. Easy peazy lemon squeezy! Go tie some heart strings!
