The Night Before Christmas {app}

Everyone loves the classic poem The Night Before Christmas, originally penned by Clement Moore.   It is a must read for Christmas Eve, and now there is a new way to enjoy it!  My daughter absolutely loves interactive books and The Night Before Christmas is no different!  Each page keeps your child engaged and will be the perfect treat for Christmas Eve!  I was really impressed with the content of this app as some can be…flimsy.  The illustrations are gorgeous, the story is told perfectly, and there are tons of little interactions for your little one to enjoy.  My daughter doesn’t need any encouragement to get excited for Christmas, but why not continue to fan the fire?  Her eyes lit up as Santa came down the chimney in a cloud a ash (which then spurred questions of how he would fit into ours).

The delightful illustrations are by Eric Puybaret and the music, sounds and narration are  by Peter Paul & Mary.  Peter Yarrow explains, ” The app has emerged from the illustrated book with last recording by Mary Travers, a narration of Clement Moore’s classic poem, recorded 5 months before she passed over two years ago this past September 16. For this reason, the book and its “app” are extra special to me, of course, as memories of days past flood this holiday season. ”

Purchase your own app through the iTunes Store for $3.99 and start a new Holiday tradition.
