Night Before Christmas interactive "book"
Wonderful app to read or have read to your children! It would have to be explained that the poem was written quite awhile ago and the graphics reflect that. I think as young as 4 years old may be appropriate--the parent must decide. But it can be read in different ways several times so worth the price. A nice gift maybe along with a big, nicely illustrated, hardcover version so they can continue to learn how to read, learn about poetry & storytelling, and thus, learn a bit about the evolution of the (English) written word. I can see where children would get carried away not in the story just making the sounds. I'd recommend reading a hard-cover version first; then on another night, as a treat, bring out this version! They'll be happily surprised! Nice, quality time before bed! A treat for kids of all ages--<wink! wink>! ;)
Night Before Christmas
I've had this book for several years and my son loves all the interactive items in the story. The narrator has a wonderful voice and is so pleasant to listen to. One of my most favorite purchases!
Great Christmas Classic well re-created
Bought for my 7 year old granddaughter. She hasn't seen it yet, but I'm impressed. Great recreation of the old, classic story. And I think she'll love exploring all the touchable objects. I'm saving the fifth star for her vote.
