Last Saturday, the day before my return to Ohio,
my daughter and I took the Aaron and Abby
to a near-by shopping center.
I wanted to buy a book for each of them--
the type where I could record my voice
reading the book to them.
I read to them numerous times every day while I was there.
I wanted to be able to still read to them after I left.
Hallmark has a good selection.
However, no Hallmark was there,
so we went to Barnes and Noble.
I had to ask a salesclerk where they were---ended up
they were in three different spots.
I chose some and brought them to a kiddie table.
Meanwhile Aaron had found this book
and his mom was buying it for him.
Aaron LOVES anything about construction.
(This turned out to be an awesome interactive book!)

These are the two books we ended up with.
One on left -- Aaron
and one on right---Abby
I recorded them Sunday before I left.
I did not think they were as user friendly as the Hallmark book
I had recorded last year.
In fact, I found them frustrating.
But Sara has reported that they love them and have listened to them
I don't have a good picture of Abby and Sara at the bookstore--at least
not downloaded yet.
So here is one of them in the kitchen.
I'm off to babysit a sick Ohio grandchild in near-by Cambridge.
Addy, age 4, is sick with fever and sore throat.
She is at the doctor's right now,
so I'll know more when I get there.
