Anyone with a Suffolk Libraries account can now record themselves reading a beautifully illustrated story or short rhymes to share with their loved ones.
Children can also read stories for a grandparent or other family member who hasn’t seen them in a long time.
Featherbed Tales have expanded their collection to include 32 recordable greetings cards celebrating every occasion from Christmas, Hanukkah, Diwali, Eid and birthdays, two books of poetry suitable for older children, five rhymes and seven new story books.
The whole collection is beautifully illustrated with characters inspired by Caroline’s love of wildlife and the outdoors.
Once you’re happy with the results, you can share a link by email so that family members can enjoy the experience together from anywhere in the world.
You don’t need any special equipment, just a computer or device with a microphone. You can redo a page if you make a mistake.
