Please note that in order for the book to function properly it must be recorded on a flat surface and in a well-lit area, so that the holes located on the right side of the book have an unobstructed view of a light source. The same conditions are also required for proper playback.
Record a Story: The Day You Were Born is a recordable storybook that enables a parent, grandparent, or other special family member or friend to read a story to a child, even if they are miles or times zones apart. The voice recording is permanent; it will not be lost when the book s batteries are changed.
