My husband lost his wife to cancer 3 years ago and while she was sick he recorded tapes of her reading to their son as well as many videos. My husband reads to his son every night and decided to ask his son if he wanted to listen to one of the tapes of his mommy reading to him.  He agreed and started to listen but broke down crying hysterically that he missed his mommy. It was very heartbreaking to see him so upset.  I am not sure that it would be a good idea to play...
