Record videos reading story books

Record lots of videos of dad reading his child’s favourite story books. The child can then select a bedtime story with dad to watch on a tablet or computer. This helps to keep up the routine of bedtime stories with dad even when dad is far from home.

  • Personalise the video by using your child’s name and including messages of love
  • Add in some made-up stories about your child
