Wonderful done classic music
With music from the pop's and pictures of Main Street in the Berkshire mountains this app brings the book to life with reader perfect voice sounds like Santa. Child can play while story reads to them or you can read to them.
The illustrations are beautiful, the reader is great and auto play is fun. My only complaint is that the music, which is beautiful, is a little too loud, and competes with the reader's voice.
Just black screen on iPad Pro
Purchased this app for the App Store on my iPad Pro. Opened it and it just shows a black screen forever. What gives? If this just doesn't work then I want my money back.
