I know one grandmother who purchases two copies of a paperback classic and sends one to her grandchild who lives in another state. Then she calls her on the phone and reads it to her. I thought that was such a great idea. Anyone have any other ways of sharing books with distant grandchildren?

We use Skype and our webcams to keep in close contact with our grandchildren. Our four year old granddaughter has started getting on the computer and calling us~! Stories can be read over Skype and it's absolutely free!

My mom came for a visit for a couple of weeks. While she was here, I pulled out about 20 great children's books and she read them onto a digital recorder, complete with a little beeper when she turned the page. My husband then burned the file to a CD and my son listened to the stories she read, while looking through the books and turning the pages at the right times. It was great because she could add in comments, just like when you're reading aloud in person!

Skype, of course. Great idea. Is Skype a program you download?
Thanks. Travis Sherman

Hi, I'm an author with Guardian Angel Publishing. We do lots of ebooks. we're in partnership with a great company called "Be There Bedtime Stories." You read the book to your grandchildren and the pages turn on the computer.
Check out my book: Sh Sh Sh Let the Baby Sleep.
