I was contacted this summer by Scott Harpole, of MyDadsBedtimeStories.com. Scott has created and recorded a whole collection of stories for kids to enjoy at bedtime. There are printed books and audio cd’s as well as downloadable tracks. Scott has even created a monthly club called The My Dad’s Bedtime Stories Readers Club. For $6 per month, you get a new story every week.
Scott was kind enough to send me 2 stories to listen to: Hooray-Sa-Doodles and Rare Bunnies. I asked The Manager to take a listen, and he smiled through Rare Bunnies. Then he not only giggled through Hooray-Sa-Doodles, but also went and got Captain Earthquake so we could listen to it again. The Captain also enjoyed it.
Given that they’re almost eleven years old, I wasn’t sure they’d enjoy the stories as much as they did. Great job, Scott!
Scott has been kind enough to extend a giveaway offer to the readers of Earnest Parenting, as well as a discount that I’ll tell you about shortly.
The giveaway is for a signed copy of the book Sleepy Beach, which comes with a CD inside, AND a one year subscription to the Story Teller Club. The retail value of this package is $87.

We’re getting into the Christmas Shopping Season, Heroes. This would make a terrific gift for any young’n in your life who adores stories.
