Read to me

Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
Read your child their Favorite bedtime story, recording your voice and taking pictures. This will be saved in the app as a story and when you are not able to be home, your child can listen to your voice reading their favorite bedtime story.
Don't miss out on reading your child their favorite bedtime story because you are working away from home !
''Read to me.......please'' How often do we hear this as a parent ?
Perfect for The Forces, International Sales people, everyone finds themselves away from their loved ones at some time or another and ''Read to me'' gives them that opportunity to not miss out on those missed days at home.
Stories can be played back to your child in the comfort of their own bed while you are away from home.
Reading with your child can be fun, informative, and gives them confidence when in the comfort of their own home reading with their Mum or Dad.
Unfortunately we can't always be there. However, with 'Read to me' you can record personal stories as well as their favorite books that you and your child enjoy. So next time you are working away from home and your child says ''read to me'' it's only a click away !
'Read to me' also encourages paired reading, which the children in year 2 are doing in the classroom. This technique is fun, it strengthens the bond between parent and child and gives the child confidence when reading together and is also fun for both parent and child.
Included in the app is my own story of Croaky and Snappy, a story I have been telling my two boys as they have grown up. I have included this to show you how you can create your own personal story, add illustrations and more importantly have loads of fun together. Ask your child to do the illustrations for you and then take a picture of it.

Great idea but could be improved
This is a fantastic idea. I am using it as I'm in the armed forces and about to deploy for 6 months. Anything like this to make the separation easier is very welcome.
But, you should be able to share your recorded content on any of your apple devices. Content can be shared via the cloud on other apps, so that changes on your iphone automatically updates and appears on the iPad. This would be great as it is far easier to record a story using your phone, but at better for my son to hear it using the iPad (also I'm taking my phone with me, so there is no point the story being on there!).
It would also benefit from having bigger buttons with symbols instead of words so it is more inituative for toddlers.
It would be good to adjust the photos 'in app' to crop them to fit.
Perhaps a basic animation facility which could zoom in/ out during playback.
The picture should be full screen during playback.
If just the first point was done I would change my rating to 4 stars.
Hi it is Katie this app is really cool but need to remember the updates as there has been none . All together though it is a great app and that is why I am rating the app 5 stars
Must have for traveling dads!
