A few months ago I bought a deal for this website called A Story Before Bed. The concept is that if you have immediate family or relatives that are out of town for work or live out of town, etc.....well, this website lets you create an account and everyone you know that's out of town can log on to this account and choose a book to read to the children. They have to have a webcam, Iphone or Ipad in order to record themselves on the website.
My children got their first story read to them from one of their aunts and they love it, because they feel like their aunt is talking to them right then and there, as if they are on skype and at the end of the story, my son says that he really liked the book and that he wanted to read it again.
You can go to the website and look at the different plans they have and they also have a video you can view of what the actual recording will look like.
