Product Description

DRP 4000 AnyBook Reader is a reading enhancement and reinforcement tool enabling language and reading enjoyment and improvement. This flexible record and playback tool with 60 hours of recording time enables read-out-loud record and playback by parent and/or child, building experience, confidence and reading ability. By recording their own reading voice the child can reinforce their own reading performance and the ability to record and playback any book or text tailors the reading and learning experience to the individual child. With ease you can “read” to your child whenever he or she desires. The AnyBook Reader uses a simple touch, record, playback process that allows you to record the words on any page of any book so you can read to your children or grandchildren even when you’re not there. The AnyBook Reader comes with a selection of AnyBook Reader stickers. Each sticker uses a unique code which allows you to associate different recordings with every page of your book. Don't worry! These stickers use special glue that won’t damage your book so you can remove and re-use the stickers at any time. Select your favorite sticker designs to personalize your recordings.

Your voice. Your child. Your books.

"Read me a book!"

How many times have you heard that? Probably more than you can count. AnyBook reader is here to help. With ease, you can now record yourself reading a book to your child or grandchild. This way, they'll have you with them always, even when you're not there. With this simple touch, record, playback process you can record any page of any book you already own. AnyBook reader stores up to 60 hours of recordings.

Any voice.

AnyBook reader doesn't use a computerized voice. It uses your voice – or your child's – or their grandparent's. In other words: any voice. This allows you to give the words the inflections you want. Create the characters' voices and personalities and help them jump off the page. Go ahead and make them laugh! After all, you know your children better than we do.

Any books.

And you know the books that your kids like. The books that help them learn. We understand that, so we won't ask you to buy any more books. You have freedom with AnyBook reader, freedom to select your kid's favorite book. Or any book from their library. Simply record any of the books they've already got.

Any time.

AnyBook reader is ready for your children whenever they want it. Maybe you're travelling on business or just working late. Maybe you're overseas serving our country or simply live far from your extended family. We're not trying to take your place. But in this small, simple way, your child can know you're thinking of them.




4 Simple Steps

4 steps

Just follow these simple steps and you will be recording and sharing books in minutes. Unlike other reading pens, the AnyBook reader works with your entire library of books. Just apply a blank sticker to each page, activate a sticker, record that page, and let your child enjoy hearing your voice read to them over and over again. It's that easy!

After a book has been recorded there is nothing else to do. When the AnyBook reader is turned on your child only needs to open the book and touch the end of the pen to a sticker to hear what you've recorded on that page.







Sticker Packs

sticker pack

AnyBook reader comes with a selection of stickers. Each sticker uses a unique code which allows you to associate different recordings with every page of your book. Don't worry! These stickers use special glue which won't damage your book so you can remove them at any time. Select your favorite sticker designs to personalize your recordings.

Fun sound effect stickers are also included so you can add special sounds to your recordings. Make a scary book scarier with "lightning and rain" or fun animal sounds like an "oink"ing pig or a "cluck"ing chicken.

Great item, easy to use.

What is nice about the AnyBook Reader is you can use it with any book in your child's library and you can use it with multiple books at one time!
Cherise Kachelmuss
I can use this pen to record any children's book I have with my voice for my daughter.

Color Name: 15 Hour Anybook Reader
Last month, a new product from Franklin Electronics called AnyBook Reader was launched. It is aimed at the working, busy or traveling parent, far-away grandparent, or any other long distance relatives, who want to bond with a child even when they are apart. It's an interactive reading device that allows you to read & record any book in your personal library in your own voice and then allows your toddler (who may or may not know how to read yet) to follow along with their favorite books and your voice, so that you're reading the book instead of the Nanny!

AnyBook can be purchased through Amazon and Barnes & Noble. There is a 15-hour version ($39.99), and a 60-hour version ($59.99).

Ok, now that you have seen the press release let me tell you all about it.

AnyBook comes with a selection of blank stickers for recording your voice. There are also stickers that have sounds recorded in them if appropriate to the book (dog, firetruck, rain, crying, etc). The stickers are made to be removed and won't ruin your pages. You can even re-record on them or order more if you run out.

You touch the button on the pen to start the record mode. You hear a few beeps and it is ready for you to record. That's it! So easy!

Last week I quickly and easily recorded two books so that I could carry it everywhere with me. My first stop was the school where I was meeting with my son's teachers and therapists.

I opened the first book and put the reader to the sticker. They heard the book being read through the pen and then I opened the next book to show them how the reader will read anything I record into the sticker. They all looked at me in amazement.

I was asked, "how do you get the recording".

Color Name: 15 Hour Anybook Reader Verified Purchase
The Franklin AnyBook Reader was a gift for my 3.5 year old son this past Christmas. It was so fun to have different members of the family record a book over the holidays. Now that we're back home away from family he is excited to hear their voices each time he listens to a book.
The product is easy to use and my son knows how to work it as well. The best thing about it is you can use it with ANY book and don't have to buy certain ones. When my son isn't using it, I will also take it to work with me to use in my second grade classroom. Very cool!

A little help for first time users / buyers . . .

I work in information technology with several different types of technologies, so I get used to all the different engineering quarks that occur on every product. I can honestly say this device is in the top of my list of poorly engineered devices at this price point. The concept is fantastic and the positive reviews are warranted, but it takes some patience to get used to at first. Here are the reasons for my criticism.

You have to hold down the record button during recording. If you want to record a short book with one record sticker, your thumb will get really tired leading to cramping, and accidently letting go, stopping your recording. Wish you didn't have to hold down the record button to keep recording.

You can't add recording to a sticker once you let go of the record button, you can only re-record the sticker - so if you accidently let go of the record button during your recording, you have to re-record the entire / page(s) or book depending on your preferred method. Wish you could add to a record sticker.

To start recording there is a four beep count down that can take around 3 or 4 seconds to start. If your child is a first grader with only a handful of words per two pages, you'll find your child waiting for countdowns longer than actually recording. If you try to do more than two pages per record sticker your child will run into my first complaint of accidently letting go of the record button while turning the pages or by thumb cramping as I experienced when trying to complete a short book using one record sticker. In my experience my first grader was spending more time waiting for countdown beeps that actually reading the two pages. Wish there was a way to modify the countdown . .

Color Name: White
Finally! ... a reader that is not limited to buying those special reading systems and the accessories for them. This is like the reading pens, but you can use the books you already have or would rather have for your children AND you record your own voice into it. So, you can personalize the story using your kids' names or by using your own character voices. It comes with sheets of removable stickers that are used to identify your recording. For example, you adhere a sticker on each page of your book. Then, you turn the reader on, touch the sticker with the reader to activate the sticker and then you record your voice reading the page. It also comes with an assortment of pre-recorded stickers with sounds on them (animals, phone ringing, clapping, etc.) to add to the story. My kids have fun with it. You can get creative with it, too. I can totally see myself eventually using this for their school items, crafts, albums, etc.
