Your imprisoned parent/loved one applies to record a story. Once they've received an appointment, they will choose a book and will be recorded reading a story using Audio or Video (not all prisons offer a video option).

The recording is downloaded onto a computer and sent to the Storybook Dads HQ and Editing Suite, where any mistakes are taken out and music and sound effects are added. When we edit a video story, pages from the books are scanned in and added so the finished story is a combination of the parent/loved one reading and the pages from the book (a bit like a Cbeebies bedtime story!)

The final edited story is then burnt onto a CD/DVD and posted home to the family.
