We gave moms a Hallmark product to help develop their child's imagination. The products were as follows:

Here is what some of our influencer moms are saying:

Jules says:
We used it the first night we got it as our bedtime story.  They kids were so quick getting ready for bed so they could hear the story.  They had no idea that Nugget would talk back during the story.  They first time he responded they were all surprised.  They asked if that was the dog that had responded. They listened to the rest of the story without speaking at all so they wouldn't miss Nugget talking.  They loved it and it is our new family favorite for sure.

We got the Cinderalla book. My Brianna loves it. When its storytime she goes straight to that book. She loves being a princess.

Mamamandee says:
A cute thing happen when my daughter told Nugget the dog she loved him, he replied with I love you too! It was not something in the book! We have been trying to come up with other saying to see what we can trigger the dog to say. This is a very cute product and I have already started recommending it to friends and family!

We received the Cinderella recordable storybook. Very often, we have nights when the girls beg for "one more story!" The recordable book is genius because I can still "read it" to my girls even when I have other things I need to take care of. They think it's so cool that mommy's voice reads the book to them and I keep hearing it when they're supposed to be sleeping, LOL! Very cool concept and what a greatly treasured keepsake for them!

Hi! My name is Pam and I'm 42 years. I'm a sahm to two kids ages 6 & 8 years old.

I was so surprised to see my package in the mail from Cafemom.  I really wasn't expecting it since I did not hear a reply back from Cafemom. So thank you Hallmark and Cafemom for letting  my kids have some fun!

Hopefully since we have a long weekend ahead of us for Memorial Day we can find time to do the project. They sent us a Recordable Artwork Art Gift Book called Because of You and a Recordable Artwork Canvas Art Kit. Both of my kids will love doing this.

I will be sure to take pictures to share with the group. Thanks again Cafemom and Hallmark for letting us join in the fun!

It is always fun to make children wait for the climax. What I do is read a chapter or few pages at a time and that keep my child engaged and excited for the next storytime. You can also be creative, storytime is a time to let true personalities shine! Using different voices for each character or acting out parts of the story can make storytime even more memorable and enjoyable for you and your child.
