Loving these Hallmark Items and Giveaway

by Nicole on December 12, 2012

Hallmark keeps introducing great products that help children read while also entertaining them and providing them with the great plushes we have come to love from Hallmark.  Check out these fun products:

Interactive Story Buddies™ bring story time to life and let families escape on magical adventures together. The plush Story Buddies chime in — barking, talking or singing — when key phrases are read aloud. This year, each Story Buddy not only comes with a corresponding book, but also with a read-along audio CD, free apps and access to digital story time online.

Bigsby may be a shy guy, but he loves going on adventures with his best friends. Follow the giant furry creature and see what big news he has in store for you in Bigsby’s Best Friend (book included); Bigsby’s Borrowed Shoes and Bigsby’s Big News.

Hallmark’s new storybook line — Be a Part of the Story — allows kids to have conversations with storybook characters. When highlighted lines are read aloud, the main character chimes in with a special question or choice for a child to answer. Once the child answers, the story continues!

I really like both of these products because they get kids reading and thinking about reading.  The plush is so cuddly and cute and it  makes reading fun since it responds! The book is also interactive and pauses to make the child answer before continuing which ensures comprehension.  Both are great examples of assisting early readers with comprehension and developing a love for reading!

From now until January 1, 2013 you can get 30% off your personalized greetings card order from by using the code BLOG30.
