Last fall, we took a look at a great site for parents who have to be away from home more often than they like. A Story Before Bed allows parents to select a book from the site’s library and then use their webcams to record a reading of the story for their kids. It’s really a wonderful idea and one that keeps families close — even when they’re apart.
Well, in the year since we’ve looked at the site, their library continues to grow and there’s another recent big addition: A Story Before Bed is now having select authors on to record their books for their Reading Room. Now you can get all the inflection and emotion just as the author intended it. If you haven’t checked our A Story Before Bed, you should. And while you’re at it, listen to a book read by an author tonight — it’s fun and it’s free.
