Hallmark Recordable Storybook Review & Giveaway (Prize Pack)

My children have been major fans of Curious George and we even went to Curious George Live Show. A great memory of the show is my mom went with us. The boys were so happy to share that moment with their grandmother.

After seeing Hallmark Recordable Storybook Curious You On Your Way! I knew it would be a perfect way for the boys to remember that special event with their grandmother.
She recorded her voice, reading the story for them, and now whenever they hear the story they re-live that time. The Hallmark Recordable Storybook is super simple to operate and brought our favorite character in the book alive in a new way. When finished, open the back and switch to saved mode. Hallmark Recordable Storybook are very special keepsakes and make great gifts with a variety of titles for every occasion.
