Read to your child, even when you’re away…

This is a lovely idea – created by a husband and wife team and aimed to help parents who are often away (or grandparents who aren’t ’round the corner) to ‘be there’ at bedtime…

Readmeastory.co.uk allows one to customise a book online by reading it in your own voice. Your child can then playback the book on a tablet or laptop and read along with ‘virtual you’. All the books can also be saved to a virtual bookshelf.

And the cost? At the moment you pay what you think the service is worth (although obviously reading with your child is priceless!)
