A Story Before Bed – Bedtime stories are cherished moments for both parents and young children. It’s an essential bonding experience which brings hearts and smiles together, on that comfy and dim lighted bed. Imagine creating the very same experience of bedtime stories, without the bed or frontal proximity between narrator and child. Sounds weird, doesn’t it? But A Story Before Bed allows us to do just that, by offering a remote access-like modus operandi for putting that little bundle of joy to sleep.
How does it work? If you’re a loving grandmother who can’t make it to your grandchild’s bed, simply pick a book from the website’s library, record yourself reading the story out loud using your webcam (recording both audio and video), preview your recording and send it to your grandchild’s home. Your creation can then be played as many times as desired, thus accurately imitating the ‘story before bed’ feeling both you and your little loved one crave. Although payment is required for completing the process, you only pay when you’re content with your recording. At any rate, this is an excellent compromise between today’s modern hectic lifestyle, and the traditional way of showing you care – feasible thanks to the digital age and wonderful execution of A Story Before Bed.
