I was searching for a cool way for my son to stay in touch with his young children while he is deployed. “A Story Before Bed” lets a person record audio and video of themselves reading a children’s book into their webcam right in their web browser!
The best part is that parents who are members of one of the branches of the U.S. Armed Forces who are deployed away from their children for any amount of time are eligible to sign up for free coupon codes from A Story Before Bed. Click here for more information.
You need a valid e-mail address ending in “.mil”. Enter it in the field below, and periodically we will send you a coupon code for a free recording. That’s all there is to it.
How Does A Story Before Bed Work?
You need a computer with Internet service and a webcam. Each recording cost $6.95, except for the special promo mentioned above.
- Choose a children’s book from the growing library. You can select books according to title, publisher, age, and length.
- Record y0urself reading the book into a webcam.
- Preview your recording and pay for it if y0u like it.
- Your child can play it back as many times as they like!
This is a great way for the deployed parents to stay in touch with young children! The child can see each storybook page, a video with the parent as they read the story!
I love this and we have already tried it with my son who is now deployed. Visit A Story Before Bed for more information.
Let me know your experience with this service if you decide to try it too!
