Hallmark Recordable Storybooks Giveaway!

This giveaway is now closed and the winner will be announced after Parker’s surgery today.

Enter to win one of two Hallmark Recordable Storybooks AND take advantage of the great offers from Hallmark listed at the end of this post.


It’s official.  Parker’s surgery date is set for the 7th of December.

One glottalplasty to go, please!


Parker is a veteran of enough hospital stays that we know next to a good surgeon and medical team, the most important things are a couple of well loved items to remind a Brave Hero of home and family.


When Hallmark sent me, All The Ways I Love You, one of their Recordable Storybooks, I immediately knew how I’d use it.

Hallmark Recordable Storybooks feature voice-capture technology that records the reader’s voice directly into the pages of the Recordable Storybook. When a page is turned, the book automatically plays the text on that page in the reader’s voice.


I had everyone sit down and read a page in their own unique voice.


Can you imagine it?  A storybook for Parker, read by those he loves the most.


Parker’s favorite people in the world added a bit of their own personality to what they read.  From “Hey!  Dude!” to “Now, come home soon!” and “I love you, man.”

I can’t imagine anything more perfect for Parker to hold on to as he recuperates from this next procedure than the love of his family in audio book form.

Thank you Hallmark, for making this surgery a little bit easier to get through.

Would YOU like to win one of these beautifully illustrated and written books?  A beautiful keepsake with the quality we expect from Hallmark, plus the ability to  personalize each one with your own recording creates a priceless gift.

Imagine the looks of delight on the faces of those separated from loved ones as they unwrap a treasure on Christmas morning.
