Do you wish you had more time in the day, to spend it reading to your children? Having our children be read to, is so important. Not only does reading to your children teach them proper dictation, but it teaches them the importance of reading. If we are willing to take the time out of our busy schedule’s to read to our kids, then maybe it will help them grasp the importance.
I have been struggling with getting my oldest to read, lately. He hasn’t interested in reading, and I keep trying to find different books for him, to see if they spark any interest in him. The thought occurred to me, that maybe I’m not setting the best example for my kids, to gain a love of reading. I actually really enjoy reading a good book, but time and a busy schedule has prevented me from doing it more. The first half of the school year, I was great about reading to my kids every single night, but I have to admit that I haven’t been as good about it as of lately. For this reason, I am super grateful for the Franklin Anybook Reader.
If you don’t have as much time as you would like, to spend it reading to your kids, then let the Anybook Reader do it for you. I don’t think this reading tool should be a replacement for good quality time, reading to your kids, but in addition to. If one story each night is just not enough reading time for your child, then record a few extra stories on the Anybook Reader, and let your child be read to over and over again. Perhaps your child likes to fall asleep to the sound of your voice. The Anybook Reader can help with that!
To explain a little more, the Anybook Reader is a handheld electronic pen, that allows you to record up to 60 hours of stories. I recommend sitting down with your kids, and reading them some of their favorite stories, while recording them into the Anybook Reader. Then give your children the pen, and let them keep enjoying storytime, over and over.
The fantastic thing about this particular reader, is that it works with ANY of the books in your library. You don’t have to buy books specific to the brand. The reader comes with sheets of stickers, which you will need to do the recording. Simply apply a blank sticker to each page of your book. Then you will activate the sticker, with the pen, and record! When you have recorded each page, give the book to your child, and all they need to do is touch the pen to the sticker on each page. Voila!
Let your kids enjoy reading time over and over again, with the sound of your voice! I think my youngest likes the Anybook Reader the best. She can just lay in bed, listening to the Anybook Reader, while she waits for me to get her brothers settled in bed. It’s the perfect thing to keep her occupied, and waiting in her bed.
The Franklin Anybook Reader can be purchased for $59.99, for the 60-hour, or $39.99, for the 15-hour edition. You can “like” AnyReader on facebook for a 20% off promo code. They are always running different sweepstakes and promotions.
