Giles from Touch and Sew blog, sent this lovely little podcast reading for my grandson. My grandson was thrilled and wants to hear it first ( before my readings) whenever we go for a drive in the car. I asked permission to post it here to share with you and yours.

When you get a chance, bop over to Giles' web site and read about his creative efforts. He is a beginning quilter, having made his first quilt this year.

On another note, be sure to join Sandy from Quilting for the Rest of Us and the crew for BOXING DAY SEW IN. Read about it at Sandy and Pam's blogs.

Reading to my grandson….

Posted by nonniesquiltingdreams in Just talking, podcasting attempts, reading for kids

Every night someone in the family reads bedtime stories to my grandson.  I recently started recording me reading to him and burning the readings to a cD.  We then put the cD in the player and he listens to it as he falls asleep.  I did this for my daughter when she was young... I used a tape recorder then.

I am posting the readings for other children to enjoy.  The include me reading, some descriptions of the pictures I am seeing; comments or questions I make when I read.  My grandson has access to the books, on the cD, so that he can read along, whenever we ride in the car or he is "RESTING" pre-Nap.

Actually I am hoping this will spur others to learn how to creat mp3 files so that they too can save their voices for their families and their future kids and grand-kids.  IF I CAN DO IT, anyone can do it.
