“This is perfect for our family! My mom lives on the other side of the country, so she doesn’t see the grandkids as often as she’d like. We do Facetime, but the timing isn’t always convenient. Bedtime stories with grandma is possible with Be There Bedtime Stories!”

“Making a video [on] takes next to no tech knowledge.... Be There Bedtime Stories is a great service. The idea seems simple yet it can really make a huge impact on bonding with our little ones whether they be our own children, grandchildren, nieces, nephew, etc.”

“WOW, what a fun and easy way to be a part of our grandchildren's lives even though we live far away from them. It would be a blast for our grandchildren to hear and see us reading their bedtime stories to them. This is a way for us to feel closer to our grandchildren and for them to keep us ever present in their minds. All of our grandchildren love to have bedtime stories read to them and this product allows us to be a part of a very special time in their lives...bedtime with a great story!”
Grandmother of Addy, Kyle, Cory, Mia and Samantha

“...Alison has created a clever storytelling – personal connection – technology solution!”

“It was easy to do. I simply read the words on the page, turned the page and began recording again. I think this is such a wonderful, memory making tool and great for parents who want to read their kids a story and aren’t able to do so at bedtime or anytime! Don’t limit reading to just one time of day.”

“What a wonderful way to share realtime bonding with bedtime stories. The most precious moments in a child’s life can be experienced as if I were there…and saved indefinitely. We’ve come a long way from the old photo albums!”
Grandmother to Kadence and Hannah

“This has to be my favorite part of Be There BedTime Stories. You can donate to military family by purchasing a story at half price, you will give a parent overseas the chance to record a story for their child... I wish had something like this when I was little and my dad was stationed overseas.”

“I think that this service has the potential to reunite families across the country, and across the world. It is cleverly and attractively packaged, very easy to understand and use, and a barrel of fun! I can’t wait for it to be fully released. I have a 6 year old daughter, and even though we live in the same house, I’m still going to use it; just for fun, and for when I occasionally travel on business!”
Father of Abigail

“Within a few minutes I had read the book and chosen to email it to my niece in care of my brother. He said they played it for baby M and she seemed excited to hear my voice!.... It’s great that when a parent or loved one isn’t near a child they can still participate in reading stories together at any time!"

“Webtime Stories offer some unique and story-specific advantages over other webcam alternatives like Skype and iChat”

“I was amazed at how easy and fun it was to record my first story. I didn’t have to adjust anything because the website does all the work…”

“This is the sweetest service I have seen in quite awhile. What an innovative idea. My granddaughter (5 years old) lives about 200 miles away from me. I don't get to see her as much as I would like to. This idea is a great way to keep in touch and she won't forget who I am. I definitely want this service!!!”

“Recording the story was a lot of fun, and my boys, who were watching, got a huge kick out of it.”

“We love the idea! Put us down for it. Being so far from our first grandchild, this is the next best thing to Grandpa’s lap!”

“I think this ‘Be There Bedtime Stories’ is a great idea! Many grandparents do not live near their grandchildren so this is a good way of being there with them during bedtime. Story reading is a special time for kids and this will allow the grandparents to share in that time. I also love the idea of donating a book to a military person who seldom gets to see their own children. Most people know how much they are sacrificing and would do anything that helps them in some way.”
Grandmother of Parker Rae

"Another cool thing about Be There Bedtime Stories is that they have partnered with ‘Blue Star Families’ to help give military children free bedtime stories. I think this is a great idea."

“What a perfect way for my daughters to strengthen their bond with their Grandma and Grandpa. I have not seen anything like it. It’s creative. It’s fun. I think it will allow Grandma and Grandpa to let their personalities come out through the storytelling.”
Mother of Abby and Cassie

Lee Ann Manley
“Bedtime stories were one of the few times that I had my full time, working mom to myself. Being able to reach out to my great nephew Gino and read to him, though he is far away, is something he and I will share as "our special time" for the rest of our lives. What a great idea Be There At Bedtime is! Thank you!”
Great Aunt of Gino

Mark Sulzman
“My nieces live so far away. To think that I could actually be there with them for their bedtime is fantastic. It’s more than just a photograph and it’s not an ordinary video. It is a very unique keepsake. I think the experience will be a growing and changing relationship builder. I love it.”
Uncle of Abby and Cassie
