Record a Story: 10 Little Pumpkins
Record a Story: 10 Little Pumpkins is a recordable storybook that enables children to listen to a Halloween story read by a family member or friend even when they are miles or time zones apart. Grandparents and other special people in a child's life can record a personal memento to keep them in a child's thoughts when they can't be there in person. Children of all ages can enjoy this keepsake storybook over and over, at Halloween and throughout the year.
Record a Story: 10 Little Pumpkins is a brightly illustrated rhyming story that celebrates the Halloween season. The book is easy to set up. Follow these directions: Turn to the page you wish to record. Press the RECORD button. Listen to the instructions. When you hear a beeping sound, read the words on the page.
After you are finished reading the page, press STOP. You can re-record until you are satisfied with your recording. Repeat the process with the remaining pages of the book. You can also record a personalized message on the dedication page. Set the locking switch behind the screw-on plate to ensure that your recording won't be inadvertently erased. Your voice recording is permanent; it will not be lost when the book's batteries are changed. Three replaceable AAA batteries that power the sound module come with the book.
Record a Story: 10 Little Pumpkins makes an ideal gift from out-of-town relatives, a parent who is away from home frequently, or someone in the military assigned to a faraway land.
Please note that in order for the book to function properly it must be recorded on a flat surface and in a well-lit area, so that the holes located on the right side of the book have an unobstructed view of a light source. The same conditions are also required for proper playback.
