Another of my favourite tech toys is the SparkUp Magical Book Reader. With SparkUp you can record your voice reading ANY book a camera will scan the pages of the book as you do this. Then when your child wishes to hear you read the book, they just clip SparkUp to the book and press play. If they skip a page then SparkUp will cleverly do so too!
